The new generation of biometric passports were issued Monday with a picture of Washington 's Dulles International Airport on the inner pages, instead of Taiwan 's main Taoyuan International Airport .

The ministry apologized for the misprint, saying that one of the passport’s designers had mistakenly chosen the wrong airport image. In the designer’s defense, the architects behind Taoyuan Airport’s Terminal One were reportedly inspired by Eero Saarinen’s design for Dulles Airport.

The ministry will reprint 200,000 passports with a new design. The Central News Agency reported that the new documents should be ready by the end of January 2018; applicants waiting for passports in the meantime will receive first-generation e-passports, which the Ministry still has in stock.

MOFA had issued a reprint of the e-passports for increased security measures. The new passports included a third image of the passport holder, a metallic surface relief and background images of “landmarks and cultural customs, all symbolic of a dynamic Taiwan,” according to the ministry.
