Taiwan Quick Take: AIT unveils new system

STAFF WRITER WITH CNA

The American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) yesterday unveiled a new appointment scheduling system for services at the American Citizen Services Unit at AIT Taipei's Consular Section. Charles Bennett, AIT consular section chief, said the new service will begin on Nov. 6 and applications for all services will be accepted by appointment only using a free online scheduling system, which will begin accepting appointments on Monday. Because of the increasing numbers of applications and office space constraints, applications for passports, notarial and social security services can often require several visits to AIT, Bennett said. But the new scheduling system would mean only one trip to AIT, less time in the waiting room and no more long lines, he said.
