Do you need a reason to get a new APRC?

Like if I want to put a new photo on my APRC but there’s no information to change, will they let me?

Sure. Just file for a change of info.

I went today and can confirm you don’t need a reason to apply for a new APRC but you have to pay NT$1000 if you’re doing it for no reason.

Changing your photo doesn’t count as a legitimate reason.

That’s surprisingly expensive. I would have thought they’d want people to keep their photos relatively recent.

How much does it cost if you lose it or it gets damaged?

They do not care.
