If I cannot personally pick up my Gold Card, can I ask someone to pick it up for me?

You must physically be in Taiwan if you want someone to pick up your Gold Card for you. If you cannot pick up your Gold Card personally, you can have a friend or family member pick it up for you. That person will have to bring the following to pick up your card:

  1. Their ID/ARC
  2. Your Application Receipt
  3. Your Resident Authorization Certificate (You must present your Resident Authorization Certificate when entering Taiwan. If you apply domestically and ask someone else to pick up your Gold Card, it is not required.)
  4. Photocopy of your Passport
  5. An Affidavit written by you stating that you have authorized this person to pick up your Gold Card for you.

Please refer to attached instructions to download your application receipt and resident authorization certificate.
