In view of travel restrictions, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) had previously announced an automatic 30-day extension of the stay period for foreigners on 21 March 2020.

On 17 April 2020, MOFA announced that all travelers who entered Taiwan on or before 21 March 2020, on a visitor visa, landing visa, or through a visa-waiver program and who have not overstayed their legal stay period will now be granted a second automatic 30-day extension.

No application is required. The total period of stay cannot exceed 180 days (the day after the entry date will be counted as the first day of stay). These conditions are subject to change and may be adjusted as circumstances require.

How is the Coronavirus affecting travel?

Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) is described as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). No medicine or vaccine for Covid-19 has been made in the world yet. It has brought perhaps the fastest, starkest change to working patterns around the world in living memory.  The Covid-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. So, it’s vital to maintain respiratory etiquette.

The best way to stop & slow down the spreading is by maintaining social distance. Protect yourself & others by washing your hands frequently and avoid touching your face.

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, all international and commercial flights have been canceled and closed all over the world. The spread of Coronavirus is invariably linked to travel. Today, tourism is a huge global business that accounts for 10.4 percent of global Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and 10 percent of global employment.

As a result, the world’s economy has suffered a lot, and the travel and tourism sector has suffered the most. Many flights have been canceled and many have had their visas suspended again. However, almost all the international airlines have extended the ticket deadlines of their customers and have also arranged ticket refunds for many. However, many of them had visa priorities or many of them could not go even after their visas expired and they have been suspended for six months or they have been informed that they will decide after all is well. Also, with the pandemic spreading globally at a rapid pace, many countries have introduced strict controls on domestic and foreign travel. However, this has left tourists stranded who are stuck in different countries all around the world. Governments are working to repatriate those facing difficulty but others do not know when they will see home again. So, for those who want to know more about the current travel advisory of other countries, you can visit the below-mentioned link:

Furthermore, tourism’s response needs to be measured and consistent, proportionate to the public health threat, and based on local risk assessment. Personal responsibility is the most important step that people can take to protect themselves and others.

Global coordination and cooperation are needed to create and distribute medical equipment, testing kits, anti-infective special clothing, and artificial respiration necessary for the prevention and treatment of corona infections.

Looking at the news spread in various electronic media, it seems that we at mercy of Covid-19 at this moment. But we cling to the hope of survival & a better tomorrow.

It is absolutely necessary for oneself and society to do one’s best to deal with the crisis without putting oneself in the hands of destiny. The state didn’t want much from us – just to stay at home and take care of personal hygiene.

আজকে একটা ইন্টরেস্টিং ট্রাভেল ডেস্টিনেশন নিয়ে কথা বলবো তা হলো পেরুর মাচু পিচ্চু

 

পেরুতে মাচু পিচ্চু, একটি প্রাচীন ইনান শহর, ১৫তম শতাব্দীতে একটি পর্বতের শীর্ষে নির্মিত হয়েছিল। একবার হারিয়ে যাওয়া শহরটি ১৯১১ সালে অ্যান্ডিয়ান বনাঞ্চলে আবৃত হয়েছিল। এটি একটি প্রত্নতাত্ত্বিক মাস্টারপিস, এবং ঠিক মিশরের পিরামিডগুলির মতো মাচু পিচ্চু বিশ্বের আশ্চর্য।

মাচু পিচ্চু দেখার সেরা সময়

 

আবহাওয়া অনুসারে পেরুতে শীতের সময় বেড়ানো ভালো সময়। শীতকাল শুষ্ক মৌসুম এবং মে থেকে সেপ্টেম্বর পর্যন্ত চলে যেখানে জুন থেকে আগস্ট পর্যন্ত ব্যয়বহুল মাস পর্যটন দের জন্য। অক্টোবর থেকে এপ্রিল এর ভিজা মৌসুমের কারণে স্বল্পতম পর্যটকদের সাথে থাকে; তবে, অক্টোবর বা এপ্রিল মাস টুরিস্ট দের দুর্দান্ত পছন্দ হতে পারে।

You may be pressured:

Exclusive countries have extraordinary visa necessities. That a whole lot, you probable already knew. What you may now not have recognized is just how complex some nations’ policies and guidelines are. As you start gaining knowledge of about the visa you want, you may, in some unspecified time in the future, emerge as harassed. The nice factor to do in this situation is taking a deep breath, step away from your application for a bit and go back with a clear head. You may do this.

You will get disappointed:

Visa applications may be genuinely maddening, particularly if they require in-person visits to publish biometrics (usually fingerprints) or do interviews. It’s a fact that you will find yourself feeling frustrated in some unspecified time in the future in the course of the utility manner, whether or not its due to an extended line, a hard software question, or something else altogether.

You will scrutinize your decision to travel:

After the disappointment organize, you will likely start to ask why you’re in any event, taking this outing in any case. Regardless of whether you are going for business or for relaxation, the chances are great that you will arrive at a point in your visa application that you’re practically prepared to quit and drop your excursion.

 

7 things you must know, if you are Travelling Alone for the First Time

What’s my spending limit?

This is unquestionably the principal thing you have to consider. On the off chance that you have $ 500 for a whole outing, at that point flying most of the way over the world is likely not going to be sensible for you, sorry.

Think about what you can reasonably bear, contemplating: flights, interior travel, settlement, going through cash and protection. What amount of cash do you have now and what amount would you be able to spare when the outing comes?


Where is my destination?

This is definitely one of my preferred things to do — Googling nations, spots to see and activities. Your time and spending will direct what spots are or aren’t accessible to you. In case you’re constrained on schedule, maybe pick a spot that isn’t 40 hours and 3 stopovers away. 

Maybe you need to go to France and become familiar with some French, or evaluate skiing in Canada, perhaps climb through Per    ú, volunteer in Thailand or eat your way through Japan. 

Do I have a passport?

Alright, so we’re going to slide this one in here on the off chance that you’re reexamining whether you need to travel alone for the first time — like, totally alone. There are unquestionably upsides and downsides to both yet I’d state this something individual and is up to you. On the off chance that you’re feeling extremely on edge about this, at that point maybe going with a companion may be a decent start.

Is it compulsory or doing it personally is a better way?

Saving your time:

The normal visa application takes a few hours to finish. That is time better went through with your family or completing an undertaking. VISAThing’s brilliant stage safely reviews your own data, slicing the time it takes to complete your visa application by up to 90%.

You Can Focus on what actually matters:
