  No mandatory quarantine  

Hi, I’m from Taiwan and my Fiancée from Russia. As some people may know Taiwan almost lock down the border, hard to get visa for entering. Since we already separated almost 600 days, we desperately to find any way the we could together again.

After we find that will be more easy to reunion at Turkey, so we travel to there. The custom and immigration officer are friendly at Istanbul airport, but PCR test was required 3 days before boarding.

And then finally I meet my fiancée at 4th Jan. after long time, and that was my happiest moments in my life, that I can hug and hold my fiancée’s hand again.

For those couple like me, I recommend meet at Turkey and that will much easy. Good luck every, hope soon every one will see your lover again soon
