I have already found several threads dealing with people needing to have various documents authenticated.
My family and I are already in Taiwan and in the process of getting our Resident Visas and ARCs processed -- no problems and pretty straightforward. However, processing our 22-month old son's documents has been a different story that has led me from one gov't office to another, all pointing in another direction.
Essentially, we have been told that we need to have his birth certificate and our marriage license authenticated. The Foreign Affairs folks at the Banqiao office pointed me in the direction of the Bureau of Consular Affairs/Ministry of Foreign Affairs who said that I needed to have had the documents processed in the US before I arrived. They gave me the address and phone number of AIT though I am fairly certain that AIT has nothing to do with this sort of thing.
Has anybody been in a situation like this? The best that I can figure is that I need to FedEx everything to the US (though we are residents of one state, were married in another and our son was born abroad so where to send things to isn't as clear as it could be), wait for it to return to Taiwan and then proceed from there? Is there any easier way or something obvious that I am missing?
