So, like an idiot I washed my passport in the laundry when I returned from the US recently. I blame the jet lag. The photo/info page looks fine and the other pages are warped but intact. However, the front and back covers are peeling, and I worry that the chip may not function. I assume I should replace it, but I can’t find specific information how to do that in Taiwan. When I renewed it a couple of years ago I could do it by mail.
I did do a search here but nothing specific or current came up (to be honest, the search function here has never been that useful to me). I also Googled, which told me that if I lost my passport or it was stolen I need to appear in person, I’m assuming at AIT? But I couldn’t find what to do simply for a damaged passport.
It seems (to me) that I should be able to do this by mail since I haven’t lost the passport, but who knows. Anyway, if anyone has any experience or can point me in the right direction I’d appreciate it.
