How to get a police clearance from Taiwan if im currently in the Philippines?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I worked in Taiwan from 2009 to 2012 so obviously I will need a police certificate from the said country since I resided for over 6months..

I found a website of Manila Economic and Cultural Office which is located in Ortigas,that they will accept and process applications for Taiwan police clearance thru their office.but since I am in Cebu,going to Manila to file will be my last resort..

I am looking for other means of getting a police clearance maybe by post mail and send it directly to Taipei Police Office foreign division..

Is there anybody here from the Philippines that had the same experience and had done it my mail.and not thru MECO office?

If yes,,how did you guys do it?

thanks in advance for reading this

Police Records

Taiwan issues police certificates, although the information is not always comprehensive. Also, legislation is pending in Taiwan that will cause criminal convictions resulting in a penalty of a fine, probation, a suspended sentence, or a sentence of less than two years be deleted from a person's criminal record. Crimes committed by juveniles are not part of the criminal record. Therefore, under the new legislation, a police clearance certificate will not show these convictions. Crimes relevant to visa issuance may be included in those that may not be shown on a person's police clearance certificate. Conversely, convictions, once part of a person's record, remains in the person's record indefinitely. The information reported by the police on police clearance certificates is reliable, but applicants have been able to exclude relevant convictions by specifying specific dates for which the check is to be performed. Information recorded in police clearance certificates comes from a national database of criminal convictions that is updated weekly. If posts suspect that a Taiwan visa applicant is concealing a criminal conviction despite presentation of a clean police clearance certificate, posts should send a completed DS-156 with a photocopy of the bio page of the applicant's passport to the Fraud Prevention Unit at AIT..

Taiwan does not use a standard system for romanizing names, resulting in a wide range of name spellings. However, every Taiwan citizen is assigned a unique national identification number that never changes. Whenever possible, queries should include a person's national identification number. Applicants with Taiwan passports should apply for a police certificate from the police headquarters having jurisdiction over the county or city in which the applicant's household is registered, as recorded in the Household Registration certificate. A third party can assist in this application. Previous residents of Taiwan not holding a Taiwan passport may apply for a police certificate by writing to:.

Foreign Affairs Division

Taipei Municipal Police Department

No. 96, Yen Ping South Road

Taipei, Taiwan.

Applicants should enclose a completed application form (available from Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Offices (TECRO) or Republic of China Embassies). There is a processing fee of US$11.00). No police certificate is available for previous residents of Taiwan who were dependents of U.S. military personnel and covered by the Status of Forces Agreement or persons living in Taiwan prior to August 1945.".

@love1987

hi Im having the same problem with the Taiwan police clearance . Were you able to get it from TECO in Manila. I'm afraid I have to do the same thing too.

Here in lies the problem with responding to a thread that is more than 2 years old.  For one the information maybe old and the other is the person to whom you are asking the question to has not been seen since around the posting date. In the case of love1987 they haven't been on VJ since July 6, 2016.  The information for PC is located here http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/fees/reciprocity-by-country.html.  Scroll down and enter in the country you want the information for as it will be the most current and up to date requirments. 

 

P.S. If you want to know when a person last logged onto VJ then tap their picture and it will take you to their profile page and near the top you will see the join date and last logged in date.
