AIT Consular Officers to Visit Taichung December 12 for Consular Services

Consular officers and staff from the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) will visit Taichung on Dec. 12, 2014, to accept U.S. passport applications and provide notary services. Applicants of all nationalities can receive notary services if their documents are for U.S. purposes.

Services will be provided at National Library of Public Information, 3rd Floor, Multi-Functional Classroom, located at No 100, Wuquan S. Rd, South District, Taichung City, from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. Appointments are not required.

Payment for services must be made by local bank draft (Cashier’s Check) in US Dollars payable to “American Institute in Taiwan” with no other amendments or notations (such as “Not Negotiable”). AIT regrets that staff will be unable to provide services without payment by local bank draft at the time of the visit. Applicants should make sure that their bank draft is for the exact cost of services.

Minor child passport renewals cost $105; adult passport renewals cost $110; first-time or lost adult passport replacements cost $135; all notary services are $50 per notary signature. More details of the fee schedules can be found here.

For passport renewal information and required documents for adults and children under 16 years of age, please refer to AIT’s website.

All applicants must prepare A-4 sized photocopies of all required documents before submitting the passport application.

For passport renewals, the passport will be ready in about three weeks and will be sent to the applicant by courier. The previous passport will be cancelled and returned to the applicant on-site at the library.
