Health Canada and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) recommend that Canadians defer travel, until further notice, to the City of Hanoi, Vietnam; the People's Republic of China including the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region; Singapore; and Taiwan. This advice is due to the mounting concern about transmission of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) agent in non-hospital and community settings in these areas.

Health Canada and DFAIT also recommend alternate routing be considered, when possible, if a traveller is transiting through the People's Republic of China including Hong Kong Special Administrative Region; City of Hanoi, Vietnam; Singapore; or Taiwan.

Health Canada is aware that health authorities in these areas are making concerted efforts to contain the spread of SARS in their populations. Given the uncertainties of the current situation, Health Canada and DFAIT believe it is prudent to await the outcome of national and international control measures before undertaking travel to these destinations.

Canadians who intend to visit Taiwan should be aware that some insurance companies will not pay claims that arise when travellers disregard the government's travel advice. It is the traveller's responsibility to obtain from the insurer and understand the terms of supplementary health insurance policies.

Taiwan is located in an active seismic zone. Several strong earthquakes measuring between 5.9 and 6.8 on the Richter scale have occurred since March 2002. Local authorities expect further earthquakes and aftershocks in the coming months. Canadians should know the address and telephone number of the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei in the event of an emergency.
