[quote=“bluesky”]A question for you, Richard, or anyone else who may know…
I just recently got my Taiwan ID card and am now officially a Taiwanese resident, though by birth, I am a US citizen. If war should break out in Taiwan, can I expect to get any aid from AIT if I decide to go back to the US, or will they refuse to help me since I am presently in Taiwan under my Taiwanese ID and passport?
As someone who has been in countries when all hell has broken lose…here is the skinny…
If you are a US citizen with a valid US passport you will be evacuated. Maybe not as soon as yopu would like, but you probably will not be ready for it when you are. Your immediate dependents will also be evac’d.
If you have renounced your US citizenship and no longer have valid proof of your US citizenship then you better have firends in useful places. Or have your Mamma and Daddyt contacting their Senators to take action on your behalf. But I would still hang aoung AIT and look useful.
Just remember…what may look like a regieme change can also be seen as multiple opportinuties opening up.
