I've read about Taiwan's Uniform Invoice Lottery, and have some receipts for the lottery. Unfortunately, I forgot to give my receipts to a friend or charity before leaving Taiwan.
Is it practical to take part in the lottery? Would I need to return to Taiwan in order to claim the prize? If so, what are the chances of winning a prize that is enough to fund a return plane ticket (approximately NT$30000) to Taiwan?
I tried reading http://english.etax.nat.gov.tw/etwmain?site=en , but the only relevant links seemed to be to announcements, such as http://service.etax.nat.gov.tw/etwmain/front/ETW183W7?id=143c7ba1dc200000fcf1f86d5e576019&site=en . It says
In order to receive the prize money, a winner must fill out the form on the back of the uniform invoice and present this with his or her ID card at any post office from 2014/02/06 to 2014/05/05.
But does not explicitly say whether post offices outside Taiwan are acceptable.
