American Institute in Taiwan
Arlington, VA
The American Institute in Taiwan is a non-profit organization established under the auspices of the United States government to serve its interests in Taiwan. Primarily staffed by employees of the United States Department of State and local workers, AIT is a de facto embassy providing services normally provided by a United States diplomatic mission. The establishment of diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China in 1979 required acknowledgment of the One-China policy and termination of diplomatic relations with the Republic of China. The AIT now serves to assist and protect US interests in Taiwan and other areas in the ROC in a non-official manner. The AIT also processes visas and provides consular services to American expatriates. It is in essence the Quasi-Embassy of United States in Taiwan.
