My wife is Taiwanese with a household registration whereas my son (under 18) is a Malaysian citizen. My wife had originally intended for our son to have Taiwan citizenship with household registration. However, there are 2 stumbling blocks – mandatory military conscription and the fact that Malaysia does not permit dual citizenship after 21 years old. For the time being, we’ve decided not to register him at the Taiwan Household Registration office and would let him decide on his nationality when he comes of age.
In my son’s case, would it be possible for him to be a citizen of Malaysia & a PR (APRC) in Taiwan at adulthood? I’ve come across some folks here saying it’s not possible given that he is a Taiwan citizen by birth. Would a APRC necessitate him to attend military conscription?
We presently do not live in Taiwan.
