Representatives of the American Citizen Services Unit of the American Institute in Taiwan will be in Taichung on Wednesday, May 2, 2007, to provide Consular services.  American citizens applying for U.S. passports, and anyone 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 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.  Only passport renewal and notary services will be available at this time.   Please note we are not able to add pages to passports in Taichung.  This service must be done at AIT's Taipei office.  Please visit our web site at for more information on adding pages.

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.  US dollar fees for U.S. passports may be found at and for notarizations at

For adult U.S. passport renewals, one A4-sized photocopy of each page in your current passport that contains a photograph, personal data or an amendment is required.  You must present your current passport plus the copies with your application.  

For U.S. passport renewals for a child under 14 years of age, the applications must be signed by both parents in the presence of the Consular officer.  If only one parent is able to come, that parent must bring notarized written consent of the other parent or an original or certified true copy of the custody decree showing sole custody.  The child must also be present.  We require one A4-sized photocopy of each parent's passport (or other valid photo ID showing name in English) plus the original documents (or certified true copy), and an original or certified true copy of the child's birth certificate. 

If your current passport is an emergency passport, please bring your receipt and instruction letter from your emergency passport application. 

New passports will be delivered via registered mail to a Taiwan address, so all passport applicants must provide NT$30.00 for postage.  For passport renewal information and required documents for adults and children under 14 years of age, please refer to our website at:
