African Swine Flu Found in Kinmen 非洲豬瘟病毒

There’s a fine up to $1,000,000 NT for bringing any meat from Kinmen.

The Council of Agriculture has confirmed the African swine flu virus was found on a pig body floated to Kinmen from possibly China. In the coming two weeks, it is strictly prohibited to carry any meat product (raw and cooked) from Kinmen to Taiwan. Any violation may receive penalty of NTD 50,000 to 1,000,000 fine. 
農委會昨日公布在一頭漂流至金門的死豬體上發現非洲豬瘟病毒,發布緊急消息規定在接下來二周內不得攜帶任何肉製品從金門回到台灣,違反規定者處以新台幣5萬至100萬罰款。

If you are traveling from China (and countries which were hit by African swine flu in the past 3 years) to Taiwan, you are also not allowed to bring or send any meat product to Taiwan. Violators will face NTD 200,000 fine. 
旅客從中國及過去3年間曾爆發豬瘟國家來台也一律禁止攜帶與郵寄任何肉製品,違者處新台幣20萬元罰款。詳細情形請至農委會官網查詢: http://asf.baphiq.gov.tw/
