[Announcement] 2022 IML Taiwan International Happiness Two Days March

Dear International friends:

Greetings from Taiwan, we wish you safe, healthy, and joyful

On behalf of CTAA Taiwan, We announce that the 2022 Taiwan International Happiness March will be held LOCALLY on Nov. 12 & 13. It is NOT an IML event.

It will still be held locally for the third consecutive year since the Covid-19 pandemic. No IML passport stamps and awards will be given according to the IML regulation.

At the beginning of this year, we thought that, like other countries, we could resume international activities and welcome foreign friends to our country. But things have changed beyond our expectations. The Omicron variant hit us a little bit hard since April. Although the spread has slowed, a recent increase in BA.4/BA.5 variants worries us, making it impossible for our government to lift border controls in September.

Our government has plans to gradually open the border and is working hard in this direction, but a clear date cannot be guaranteed so far.

As November approaches, given the uncertainty surrounding the border opening date and inbound tourism planning steps, we regret that we have to announce the decision to cancel today in order to respond to previous inquiries from international friends.

We are very sorry for it and appreciate everyone’s understanding.

We believe that our border will be opened in the near future and this international event can be resumed surely next year.

Look forward to seeing you in Taipei next year.

Sincerely,

 

Chinese Taipei Alpine Association(CTAA), Taiwan
