New Appointment System for Consular Services at American Institute in Taiwan, Kaohsiung Branch Office

PR0838E | Date: 2008-06-17

The Kaohsiung Branch Office of the American Institute in Taiwan is pleased to announce a new appointment scheduling system for all consular services, except adult passport renewals and additional pages, which should be mailed to or dropped off at the Consular Section of the Kaohsiung Branch Office.  Beginning Monday, June 23, 2008, applications for all other services will be accepted by appointment only, using a free online scheduling system. 

Based on the overwhelming success of the online appointment system at AIT Taipei, AIT Kaohsiung has decided to offer appointments to better serve the people of southern Taiwan. 

The new scheduling system will mean only one trip to AIT Kaohsiung instead of multiple trips for most services, less time in the waiting room, no more long lines, and new passports will be delivered faster. For American citizens, consular assistance is always available without appointment in case of emergencies such as life-and-death situations, arrest, and indigence. 

Please visit the AIT Kaohsiung website now for more information about U.S. Citizen Services or to schedule an appointment.
