- Male born in Taiwan in 1965
- Emigrated to US with the entire family in 1980 (when I was 15)
- Became a naturalized US citizen when I turned 21
- I am 52 years-old now.
I’m thinking about visiting Taiwan as a tourist in the near future. I don’t plan to stay in taiwan more than 30 days.
Am I running the risk of Taiwan not letting me leave until I full Taiwan’s conscription requirements?
Also, who/what governmental department should I talk to in order to get a straight, official response for my concerns? Surprisingly, no one I talked to so far knows for sure and have been giving me the run-around. I haven’t tried the Conscription Administration Department in Taiwan because I’m concerned they don’t speak English well (and my Mandarin is less than fluent at this point).
The impression is that, since I’m 52 now, I’m outside of the conscription age range (18-36?) so there should be no problem. Do the gatekeeper at Taipei airport know the regulations (whatever they might be)?
thanks in advance!
