It’s actually 360 days. At least you could travel to visit a dying relative or something. Anyway, in theory if you are from certain countries you can resume citizenship and continue using the visa-free privileges that your country bestows. But if you’re from Canada or the US, then too bad.[quote=“Brianjones, post:142, topic:159031”]
Got me one of these today.
Post a bloody picture of yours! I know it looks exactly the same, but it’s not the same one! [quote=“Brianjones, post:142, topic:159031”]
You get something that says it’s a Taiwan passport, looks exactly like a Taiwan passport but is not really a passport.
Post a picture! Come on…[quote=“Brianjones, post:146, topic:159031”]
I’m afraid to give it up to be honest even if in theory it should be easy to reapply.
It would be great if you could contact the relevant government office, explain your situation and ask how easy of a process it is to resume citizenship. You should be fine.[quote=“Brianjones, post:146, topic:159031”]
No visa free travel and not accepted by Europe or US
US definitely accepts the passport as a valid travel document. They have a specific stipulation that it is to be treated the same as a stateless person’s travel document meaning the maximum length of stay on any visa type is 3 months.
You say no visa free travel but I can see a few countries on that map where there is no national ID number required. Again it’s more than just some Asian countries that you can travel to on a visa. You should be able to go pretty much everywhere most other people are able to go it’s just that you will probably need a visa for it, but at least you can go to South Korea without a visa.[quote=“Brianjones, post:151, topic:159031”]
The system is the wrong way around in terms of residency requirements and how to issue functional passports that allow you to live and work in the modern world.
I tend to agree with you there.[quote=“Brianjones, post:155, topic:159031”]
One ‘manager’ in the Xinbei NIA office managed to nearly get me barred from re-entry when they cancelled my ARC when I was overseas before handing me my TARC.
The immigration officer at the airport then stamped my passport visa free admission 3 months and told me I needed to get a resident visa lol.
That’s pretty hilarious.
Wrong. That’s not what they’ve proposed at all. That would be a world record if that was the case.
