[quote=“libragirl”]I have an overseas Taiwanese passport with an exit and entry permit valid until Jan 14 2005. Duration of stay is 3 months. I plan on staying until March 2005. Can I extend the permit or will I have to live before Jan 2005. I heard that you can extend it once but I need to extend it twice because I will be in Taiwan for 7 months.
I’m not born in Taiwan but my parents are Taiwanese and I have family in Taiwan, will this help? I also don’t have an ID number in my passport.
If you still have a copy of your old family record with your name and ID number, you can apply for a ROC passport for citizens. Then you’re in the clear of any visa worries.
Ask the Taiwan Economic and Cultural office in Sweden if you can apply for a temporary passport for entry, solely for the purpose of obtaining a later valid national passport, not the overseas one. The office would need a copy of your family record with your name in it. It can’t hurt and you might be pleasantly surprised. If all your documentation is in order, you may also be able to get a Taiwan ID card as well. Then you’d attain dual citizenship.
