✅Important information for American Citizens in Taiwan:
The U.S. Department of State has updated its Global Travel Advisory Alert (https://travel.state.gov/…/travel-advisory-alert-global-lev…) to Level 4 – Do Not Travel. Additionally, American Citizens abroad are reporting that it is increasingly difficult to return to the United States given significant flight cancellations. The American Institute in Taiwan urges American citizens who plan to return to the United States to do so as soon as possible.
✅Important information for visa applicants regarding novel coronavirus (COVID-19):
