PR0562E | Date: 2005-12-05

Representatives of the American Institute in Taiwan will be in Taichung on Thursday, December 15, 2005, to provide Consular services.  American citizens wishing to file applications for U.S. passports, and all persons requiring the services of a notary public for U.S. purposes, may come to the American Corner located in the National Taichung Library at 291-3, Jingwu Road, Taichung City from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm for these services.  Only passport application and notary services will be available at this time.  Payment for services must be made in cash in either NT$ or US$ dollars only.  Please bring the exact amount as we cannot give change.

For adult U.S. passport renewals, each applicant is required to make, in advance, one A4-sized photocopy of each page in his or her current passport that contains a photograph or personal data.  Parents wishing to renew the passport of a child under 14 years of age must bring the child, copies of the parents' passports or I.D. cards, and an original or certified true copy of the child's birth certificate.  Applications for passports for children under 14 must be signed by both parents in the presence of the Consular officer.  If both parents cannot come to the American Corner, the applying parent must bring notarized written consent of the other parent or an original or certified true copy of the custody decree showing sole custody.  New passports for these applications must be delivered via registered mail to a Taiwan address, so all passport applicants must provide NT$30.00 to cover postage costs.  For passport renewal information and required documents for adult and a child under 14 years of age, please refer to our website at:
