Virus Outbreak: Majority wants passports remade to end confusion


The cover of the nation’s passports bears the name “Republic of China” in English under the nation’s official Chinese name, while “Taiwan” is printed in English under the national emblem. Republic of China passports are pictured in Taipei on Feb. 26. “People have suggested using stickers or passport holders to distinguish the Taiwanese passport from the Chinese passport. We suggest that the passport cover be redesigned,” NPP Chairman Hsu Yung-ming (徐永明) said. The party would ask people to submit their ideas for a new passport cover design before the summer vacation, Hsu said, adding that it would work with experts to create samples for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to consider.
