China has just decided to fix the ID number for the Taiwanese who use Mainland issued travel document Tai Bao Zheng, to travel from Taiwan to Mainland. This travel document is the only valid legal ID document.

Previously, when the document was reissued every five years and the ID number got changed each time. This created difficulties in relation to bank accounts, home ownship and employment.

The new policy of fixed ID number for life bring convenience to the Taiwanese living on the Mainland.

More important, this ID number creates a permanent link between Taiwanese and the Mainland. Psychologically, this is a big thing. Over time, Tai Bao Zheng will be seen as Chinese passport for Taiwanese.

There are currently no comments highlighted.
