[quote=“funkymonkey”]I just noticed this:
The guarantor does not have to be a Canadian citizen, BUT must be chosen from the groups specified on the passport application form, and must work or practice in Taiwan . This individual must have known you personally for at least two years to qualify as a guarantor. The guarantor must sign the guarantor portion on the passport application form only after the application is completed in full and signed by you. Applications submitted with a date of signature for the guarantor preceeding the date of signature of the applicant will be rejected.
If you do not have a guarantor which satisfies these conditions, you can fill out the form PPT 132 “Declaration in Lieu of Guarantor” and sign it in the presence of a commissioner for oaths, notary public, lawyer, or a Canadian consular officer at the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei (for a fee of NT$ 1,500).
Please Note: The PPT 132 form may not be accepted in some situations. For example, if you have been living in Taiwan for over 3 years, you will be expected by Passport Canada to have a guarantor and the form will likely be refused.[/quote]
Mordeth, this definitely applies in your case.

Friend of mine has been here for 5 years and he has been seeing the same doctor for that whole time. He asked him to sign it and the doctor refused.
Taiwanese are afraid to sign anything legal looking.
He explained that at the office and they let him use the PPT 132 form.
I know a guy who works at a bank…I’ll try him…and there’s a cop I know that’s pretty friendly…I could try him if the bank guy can’t do it.
