My fiance is a filipina but worked in Taipei for a year. We understand that when she goes for her embassy interview she will need a police certificate from Taipei. She now lives in the phillipines. Do I need to have her fly to Taipei to get the cert., or is there another way to get it. before her interview (apx. 2 mos. from now)

Any help would be appreciated

If they have Emabssy in the Philippines she should be able to apply for it there once you receive the NOA2. My wife worked in Japan and I knew she would need the police clearance. I happened to be in the Philippines when we received the NOA2. This allowed us inside the U.S Embassy to request they write letter for receiving the Japan Police Clearance( we 1st tried the Japan Embassy to request this, we were told they must receive letter of request from the U.S Embassy first). They wrote the request letter for Japan Police Clearance .We then went back to the Japanese Embassy with the U.S Embassy police clearance request letter, my wife gave this to them, we then had to go have her finger prints taken, then back to Japan Embassy with her finger print card, they took the info and sent all to Japan for process, stated it would take 30 to 45 days to be ready, they called my wife 40 days later for pickup of police clearance.

This gives you an idea of how to obtain what you are asking for.. Hope this helps.

The MECO will process your Taiwan police clearance, whether you are residing in Taiwan or not. If you are still residing or working in Taiwan, you are advised to file the request with the Taiwanese Police directly. You can file the application with our office at Makati, Metro Manila.

Procedure in Applying for Police Record Certificate

1. Fill out Police Record Certificate Application Form

2. Submit requirements of 2 photocopies of passport used in entering Taiwan

3. Pay processing fee of NT$250.00 or Peso equivalent

4. You will be given an acknowledgment receipt of the processing fee

5. Processing period will take approximately eight weeks upon filing at the Taipei police county to receiving the certificate in the MECO Manila Office. .

6. The Administrative Assistant in Manila will notify you once the police record certificate is received so that you can already claim it

7. You need to present the acknowledgment receipt to claim the said police clearance.

If you cannot personally claim the police clearance, you can assign an authorized representative. The authorized representative shall present all of the following:

a. Your letter of authorization and one of your valid IDs

b. One (1) valid ID of the authorized representative

The Manila Economic and Cultural office seems to be a way to obtain a Taiwan police clearance. The website states "whether you are residing in Taiwan or not".

Hope it helps shed some light.

Hi, here is a link that will give you some information. It should be helpful. I have also cut a paste the portion about police records below:

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."


I Looooooove my baby Lyn.

Can somebody help me? I was been interviewed last Nov. 5 and I need to wait for my Japan Police Certificate to be release hopefully this week. But the US Embassy staff took my Passport after my interview and he just instructed me to pass my police cert when it is there. But I just found out that I need to present my passport to the Embassy of Japan for the releasing of my police cert. Can I just go straight to the US Embassy in Manila and just ask the staff to pull out or borrow my passport for awhile then give it back together with my Japan Police Cert? Please help!!!
