the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT) of the Taiwan Ministry of

Immigration Agency can effectively implement travel restriction
provisions of the UNSCRs. AIT requests the information be sent, as

UNSCRs 1737, 1747 and 1803 on specific foreigners, BOFT would like
to seek AIT's assistance in obtaining complete background
information, including nationalities and dates of birth, so that the

(NIA) for appropriate action.
