My Taiwanese passport was issued in L.A, I got my Taiwan ID just fine

It became more regulated, but not impossible. You already have the hardest part -the overseas ID. Go to TECO and find out which procedures apply to your case.

You must get a household registration in Taiwan first.

To do that generally you have to move over here for awhile.

I already had a household register so it might be different for you. I got my ID in Feb.

Have you ever lived in Taiwan before and received household registration? If you were ever registered and then revoked because you left the country for a period longer than two years you may be able to re-register. That is the case with me - I was born in Taiwan but moved out of the country at a young age, but since I was registered before I was able to resume registration AND get my national ID card within the same day of arriving back to Taiwan.
Apparently I beeeotch a lot about everything on message boards - be forewarned.

I have lived in taiwan for over three years beginning 2004, I first entered using my Taiwan overseas passport, but since it wont allow me to work legally using this passport, have to leave and enter again using my foreign passport for me to apply for a work visa and lived there legally. (Ironic?) But still no matter how I explore getting an ID, it just wont allow me to get a household registration. and it is still APIEN time when I left.

Anything new on the rules for overseas chinese now? Thanks

Because you did not complete your residential requirement you cannot get your HH and ID CArd.

You cannot count any period as a foreigner.

And you can get permission to work whilst doing your time I believe. My neighbour is doing just this to meet the 1 year requirement so he can get his ID card as he has an overseas passport as he grew up in the USA.

Stop blaming the rules on a former President. They were there before he was elected and are still there now.

Go blame your KMT government if you don't like the rules as they were the ones who enacted them in the first place.

I had to live here as an overseas CHinese for 1 year to get my HH and ID card. Surely you can do the same if it means that much to you. I am not saying I like the rulles bubba, but you gotta do what you gotta do to get what your want.

No easy route.

In your passport does it list an ID 身份證 number?

I was also able to get mine within a day -- just established residency with a relative.
