Hey there! I’ve been looking all over the forums, but I can’t seem to find an exact answer for my particular situation…
My mom was born outside of Taiwan, but held a Taiwanese passport (with household registration) because her father was Taiwanese. When my mom turned 30, she got a Canadian passport, and just forgot about her Taiwanese passport. She’s got an old 身分證 because she used to work in Taiwan and she used to live with her relatives (who have now passed away). Now I’ve just spent the past year studying Chinese and have been working in Taiwan for the past 6 months now, and I’m trying to figure out how to gain citizenship.
My mom just reapplied for a new Taiwan passport for the sake of helping me get a passport, but since her ID card expired, TECO now issued her a national without household registration passport. She also can’t renew her ID card because her relatives have now passed away, meaning she can no longer join in their household registration. I’m currently about to apply for my own overseas taiwanese passport, but does anybody have any idea how i can transition to a citizenship given my mom’s situation? Can i apply for a TARC and or is it an APRC?
a little info about me, i have an ARC, am above 20 years old, and have been in taiwan for about 1.5 years now. Thanks in advance!
