Most foreign governments require that documents be authenticated by Bureau of Consular Affairs, BOCA or Ministry of Foreign Affairs, MOFA'S branch offices, but some do not. Therefore, BOCA suggests applicants contact the embassy/office of the country related to the documents to determine whether or not these documents need BOCA's or a MOFA branch office's authentication.
In addition to the regulations set forth above, applicants and their agents are also requested to pay attention to the following:
(1) BOCA and MOFA's branch offices provide walk-in-service only. Applicants are served on a first-come first-served basis.
(2) When applying for document authentication, applicants must prepare enough copies, namely, in addition to the documents to be authenticated, they must provide BOCA or MOFA's branch offices with one supplementary copy of each document for record-keeping.
(3) Please allow two working days for the necessary procedure of authentication.
(4) Failure to adhere to BOCA or MOFA's branch offices guidelines may prolong the authentication process.
(5) A 24-hour expedited service is now available; the extra charge for each original document is NT$200, for each document copy NT$100.
