      Everyone, just a heads-up if you’ve registered for the E-gate immigration route: When arriving into Taiyuan International Airport in Taiwan (not sure about the others actually), and you’ve renewed your ARC or passport, you would need to re-register all over again, (another photo taken and your eyes and fingerprints scanned again for it to work.

      Anyone actually use the E-gate immigration route rather than waiting longer in the queue for the conventional method? I think even so, it’s still a lot more convenient, right?

      Ya I use that, it’s awesome! I just smile and wave at all the suckers that don’t use it!

      Hahah, same!

      I was encouraged to use it last year, but I later changed my address, and therefore, my ARC, too). This meant that I had to reregister all over again for the e-gate.

      Even so, reregistering and going through it was still much faster than everyone else and the conventional route!

      I’ve heard from recent news, (I think the Taipei Times), that they want new users to pay for registering to use the e-gates? Something about needing the funds to run them not that more and more people are using them.

      It’s not the only thing they’re saying about them:

      Apparently, officials bought biometric equipment from China for use in the e-Gates in the nation’s three major airports.

      I wonder who has your details now…
