Hi all, I did try searching and didn’t find anything that really answered my questions, so if it is here and I didn’t see it sorry.
Anyway my questions are regarding duel nationality and getting Taiwanese citizenship.
Firstly, I have heard (but do not know anyone personally who has done it) that foreign nationals can get their Taiwanese citizenship. As I understand it, after being married for three years or living here on a working ARC for 5 years one is eligible to apply for their ROC passport. But in order to do that, you must renounce your current citizenship. I have heard that Australian and New Zealander's can give up their passports and then just get them back no problem. Does anyone know How it works for Canadian citizens? Has anyone done it, or knows for sure how it's done? I love Taiwan and would like to stay, but I also love Canada and let's face it, having a Canadian/American/(pick your western country) passport certainly has it's advantages.
Also, You need to spend a year being nation less, is that correct? What does that mean really? You can;t travel out of the country, but is that for the full year, is it actually just a year or does the red tape make it a year and bit? I guess my questions on this are a little disoriented because, my main concern would be keeping or getting my Canadian citizenship back.
I would really like to have both and the impression that I have gotten, is that it is possible to give up your passport and then get it back. If anyone can help me obtain the information on how to do this, or point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Please Pm me, or reply here if you have any information that could help me.
