Taiwan is set to begin issuing passports with a new design on January 11.

The cover of the new passport is designed to make the word “Taiwan” more prominent. The new cover has also been designed to minimize possible confusion between Taiwanese and Chinese passports: on the new passport cover, the country’s official English name, “The Republic of China” to small text inconspicuously circling the national emblem.
