Has anyone had recent experience with this process? I understand I can go in person to AIT, hand in the form, keep my current US passport while the new application is in process, and go back there to pick it up 2-3 weeks later. I assume this means I can still use my current passport with the new one is in process, in case of quick notice trips to leave taiwan?
Also, does anyone know if I can apply for a replacement passport even if i have a few years left on the current one? Lets say i just want the enhanced security features of the new one.
Thanks in advance for any experience/advice.
