Hi, I wanted to get some feedback on my eligibility for a NWOHR passport
My situation is I was born in the US to a Chinese mother, who was not a permanent resident at the time. This was during the 1990s. My mother was born in the 1970s, and can trace her lineage to Ningbo when it was under the ROC and even the Qing dynasty. I do not hold a mainland passport or hukou, only USA citizenship.
I can see that I can apply for an OCIC on the basis of Chinese ethnicity, and an OCIC can be used as proof of ROC nationality, which would then make me eligible for a NWOHR passport if my understanding is correct. Furthermore I would be able to gain residence in Taiwan and acquire local hukou, and be able to keep both my USA citizenship and ROC citizenship, whereas if I naturalized I would have to give up my USA citizenship
I do not believe my ancestors held any ROC issued government documents like a passport as they were living in a farming village at the time.
Has anyone else been in a similar situation? Is my understanding correct on my eligibility? Can anyone recommend an agency that can help handle the application process?
