Over the weekend, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that businesses that wish to import COVID-19 vaccines to Taiwan must first entrust an authorized pharmaceutical company to apply for approval from Taiwan’s Food and Drug Administration (TFDA).
The point of contact for companies that are ready to file a COVID-19 vaccine import application is the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB): 0800-000-257. Please only contact the IDB once you have confirmed a source for the vaccines and are ready to seek assistance with the application process. For general information, please refer to the CECC website.
*Companies may indicate in their proposal whether a certain number or percentage of the vaccines should be reserved for the company’s staff and their family. The TFDA will take into account such information when reviewing the application.
**Please note that this translation is prepared by AmCham, not the Taiwan government.
