Reestablishing Hukou

Postby franko76 » 22 Feb 2016, 21:27

I'm here in Taiwan now. Have a Taiwan passport w/ ID# with which I entered. I even have a copy of an old hukou with my name on it from a VERY long time ago. I'd like to reestablish it and get my ID. Is it as simple as going into the household registration office of the county my old hukou is under and getting it reestablished? What if I don't live there now?

You can go to the new office and ask them to register you. They have all of the data online. So, the process is very simple. If you want assurance, call their hotline first and ask about the process.

Thanks I'll give that a try. Would I have to bring anything like a letter from my landlord or anything like that?

Well just to update it wasn't as easy for me as some described. I went to the local household registry (not my original one) and the guy told me that my hukou has been moved overseas since I've been away for more than 2 years. What I would have to do is either place myself under a relative's (of which I only have the distant kind) hukou, or submit relevant documents from my landlord. I was wondering if this is what you all who revived your hukou did.

I should note that the original hukou I have was from when I was a kid and under my parents' name. They also don't have a hukou here anymore for being away for so long. So it probably wouldn't be worth going to the household registry to try to reactivate my hukou there, no?

Hey Franko76,

I'm pretty sure you won't be able to go back and reactivate your old hukou if your parents have also been "archived" as overseas Chinese... your best bet would be to go through the "relevant documents from landlord" route...

This may make other things easier going forward too (having a hukou that is actually nearby) because if you want to register for national health insurance without employment you have to do it where your hukou is registered, also when it comes to voting (if you feel that way inclined) you have to do it there too....
