data on who is getting Taiwanese citizenship. Mostly women married to TW men, no surprise there . And mostly vietnamese ladies. Again probably not a surprise.

“The ministry said that 85,887 people have obtained ROC nationality over the past decade.”

A drop in the ocean for a country with a population of 20+ million.

I noticed that 722 people renounced ROC citizenship. I assume that to be because they got a better deal elsewhere or left Taiwan because of Taiwan’s Alternative Minimum tax(like some US citizens are doing)

im guessing they became Japanese subjects. I think Japan requires them to renounce other citizenships if they wish to become Japanese citizens. I may be wrong tho.

Also, many of those would be second generation Taiwanese or overseas Chinese or born in Taiwan but never applied for citizenship.

I think that number comes from immigrants who renounced and had held ARC’s. Those getting citizenship from parents arent included. If you are born in Taiwan to an ROC parent you are already a citizen and dont have to renounce if you held foreign citizenship

Or they could become citizens of countries that only allow one citizenship.
