Q1: Is the Same-sex partnership registration still valid after same-sex marriage registration is legal since May 24, 2019?
A1:
  1. Same-sex partnership registration will not be accepted after May 24, 2019, because same-sex marriage is legal.  The same-sex partnership registration should be cancelled after the same-sex couple get married.
  2. Same-sex marriage is not allowed for one Taiwan citizen and the other from a country NOT acknowledging same-sex marriage to apply for in Taiwan, but they are able to apply for the same-sex partnership registration.  For those who already have the same-sex partnership registration, the effect of registration still remains.  The required documents are as below:
    1. Both parties will bring, in person, the National Identification Card, stamps (or signatures), and standard color photo (from within 2 years in electronic file), to any of the Household Registration Offices in Taipei City.
    2. If one of the parties is not an ROC citizen, please also submit a Declaration of Chinese name for foreigners, and the Marital Status Certificate (also known as the Affidavit to Single Status) authenticated by a R.O.C. Embassy or Mission Abroad together with the Chinese translated version.  If it is not possible to have an official Marital Status Certificate as required, other documents which can prove the real status and certified by our embassies or diplomatic offices are possibly acceptable.
    3. If a marriage is registered abroad, please submit the marriage certificate that is certified by ROC Embassy or Mission Abroad, or the institution designated by the Executive Yuan or an entrusted private organization in Hong Kong/ Macau, together with the Chinese translated version which is certified by ROC Embassy or Mission Abroad, or a notary in Taiwan.
