A suggestion. Go to where you are "Household Registered" and ask them.

TC thanks and I'm actually calling Tainan now (registry). Who knows, if all goes well, I'll be down in Tainan this new year to take a job and we could possibly go for a pint.

Ok....

Now I'm happy....

For any of you that need to know, I've just called MOFA and *Tainan's registry office and apparently all I will need to do is authenticate my CCRD from 2003! Meaning that if your CCRD is less than 5 years old, all you will need is authentication from you home city TECO office.

Whos' your Daddy?! *spank*
Thanks to all who've put some time into responding.


*Tainan's registry office also had informed me that I will need an updated household registration form. No problem.




Merry Bloody Ho-Ho!

The day I remove the weight from my gut and put it back on my shoulders. Missed opportunities are a bitch. Literally.
