Need help about my passport

Postby honeyletlim » 29 Jan 2014, 11:38

Hi!

I have both Philippine passport and Taiwan passport
I am a naturalized chinese and also a filipino because my mom is filipina

My question is, is it true that if I use my Philippine passport to enter taiwan (the visa to enter taiwan will be placed on my philippine passport) my taiwan passport will no longer be valid (I will have to surrender my taiwan passport)?

Thank you!

Good day
No! You don't have to surrender you Taiwan passport since both countries recognizes dual citizenship. You don't need to apply for Taiwan visa on your Philippine passport. At the Philippine immigration present both Philippine passport and Taiwan passport, since your "visa" is already your Taiwan passport. The officer will stamp both of your passport. Then when you arrive at Taiwan, present only your Taiwan passport.

Cheers!
