*BC and ROC National ID

Postby answerer » 30 Dec 2007, 01:20

Very sorry if this has been addressed already. I've searched the forum, MOI, BOCA, Taipei City, Household Registration, etc and haven't found the information I need.

Recently, I've had two friends who are both ABCs receive their ROC National IDs. They both claim to never have been on the Household Registration (hukou) and said that all they need to do was 1)Get a ROC passport 2)Get a Overseas Chinese stamp on it 3)Enter Taiwan with it.

However, since their parents took care of most of the details, they aren't sure about the exact requirements.

Has anyone here gone through that process and/or could explain the requirements and necessary documents?

Well, under Article 7 of the ROC Constitution, all "people of the ROC" are equal in all ways.

Hence, (assuming that the government follows the ROC Constitution), it should be a very straightforward process.

I think ironfist went through this process just recently in the past year.

In my experience, not being on a hukou, would absolutely require some proof that the ABC and parent were related by blood such as birth cert (even if on the hukuo, some proof would be asked for documenting relationship or that you are that person on the hukuo because the hukuo name would be in Chinese and your documentation would be in English). And, that parent would absolutely have to have a hukuo in Taiwan in order for this to proceed. Otherwise, the only other way is that the relevant agencies turned one eye away and just "gave it" to them which may be depending on where it was processed. But basically, no hukuo tying yourself to Taiwan (i.e. through family or marriage) means SOL for anyone looking to get their ROC ID.

Processes and documentation is what the relevant agencies you're dealing with require you to have. May be a lot, may be a little. That's Taiwan. I'd suggest you really try to get the details from your friends to see if you can get on that same track as them, using the same agencies/people if possible to save yourself the hassles.

Good luck.
