Taipei, Dec. 18 (CNA) Taiwan’s representative office in Washington urged Taiwanese nationals on Thursday not to place stickers on the cover of their passports, warning that they could be denied entry to the United States for doing so.
In a statement, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States said that if Taiwanese passport holders traveling to the U.S. place “Republic of Taiwan” stickers on the cover of their passports, they could be asked to remove the stickers by immigration officers after they arrive at the airport, or be questioned by immigration authorities.
In the worst-case scenario, they could be even denied entry and be deported back to Taiwan immediately, the office warned. [FULL STORY]
