I’ve spent a few years in mainland China and was always asking about the possibility of getting citizenship there. As an Australian citizen I was told that although there is official allowance for foreigners to eventually become citizens, in effect this can never happen - because politics, whatever.
An interesting discussion about this here:
Now bear with me here…I’ve also read that because of the historical nonsense between the two Chinas, there is something along the lines of a ‘right of return’ for Taiwanese to go to the mainland and become a PRC citizen without too much hassle. So, theoretically could I get Taiwan citizenship after renouncing my Australian citizenship and then, as a Taiwanese citizen, go to PRC and claim citizenship there?
Without going in to the details of why one would want to become a citizen of mainland China, does anyone here know of someone who has gotten a PRC passport by first becoming a citizen of Taiwan?
