Asia

Regional Resource For Depositions in Asia

After Europe, Asia is the most popular region for U.S. depositions. This is due to the large amount of business, technology, and intellectual property exchange between the U.S. and Asia and the litigation that can sometimes result. Some Asian countries can be a challenge: China forbids U.S. depositions on its territory, and Japan has special requirements for deposition visas and holding depos on U.S. consular grounds. In general, however, Asia is a relatively open region for conducting depositions. Please contact us for specific details pertaining to your deposition country.

Transportation

Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan are major airport hubs for the region, with inexpensive flights to carry you to virtually anywhere in the region. For ground transportation, you can call a taxi from your hotel or the nearest tourism information office can recommend a reliable service.

Currency

ATMs
The easiest and best way to get cash away from home is from an ATM. Be sure you know your personal identification number (PIN) and daily withdrawal limit before your depart.

Credit Cards
Credit cards are another safe way to carry money. They provide a convenient record of all your expenses, and they generally offer relatively good exchange rates.

Security Issues

Aisa is generally a safe place for travelers, but you still need to keep your wits about you to avoid scams and other problems on the road.

1. Petty crime, such as pickpocketing and purse snatching, occurs, especially at the airport, on public transportation, in main tourist shopping areas, hotel lobbies, and crowded streets. Bags left unattended are likely to be stolen. Exercise normal safety precautions and ensure personal belongings, passports, and other travel documents are secure at all times.

2. Large demonstrations occur. Travelers are advised to avoid demonstrations and large gatherings, monitor local media, and follow the advice of local authorities.

3. Be a smart traveler. Before heading overseas:

    • • Organize comprehensive travel insurance and check what circumstances and activities are not covered by your policy.

• Register your travel and contact details with the local U.S. consulate, so you can be contacted in an emergency.
