Formal Announcement from Ministry of Education
Recently, a formal announcement from the Ministry of Education regarding the health examination requirements for students holding “the Visitor’s Visa with Studying Mandarin Purpose”. It is crucial to ensure the well-being and safety of all students by complying with these health examination regulations.

The health examination consists of two mandatory items:

1. Measles and German Measles:
   - Students must provide a positive  antibody test report (within 5 years from the report date) or a valid vaccination certificate.
   - The report or certificate must be translated into either Chinese or English. Following translation, the document should be certified by the embassy or consulate and brought to Taiwan for registration upon admission.

2. Tuberculosis (TB) Chest X-ray Examination:
   - Students must undergo a TB chest X-ray examination in their home country within 3 months prior to their arrival in Taiwan.
   - The report or certificate must be translated into either Chinese or English. Following translation, the document should be certified by the embassy or consulate and brought to Taiwan for registration upon admission.

It is essential that students bring their examination reports for verification at the registration counter on the first day of their study. Students who cannot fulfill the above requirements in their home country must complete the examinations within 14 days after their arrival in Taiwan.

Any violation of these requirements would result in immediate dismissal from the program, and no refunds will be issued. We strongly urge all students to comply with the requirements to avoid disrupting their study abroad experience.
