Foreigners becoming Chinese Citizens
I'm curious. I just found the this:
How Foreigners can Become Chinese Citizens:
Article 7 of the Nationality Law states that foreigners who will abide by the Chinese Constitution and laws can apply to be naturalized as Chinese citizens if they meet one of the following conditions:
1. They have close relatives who are Chinese nationals.
2. They have settled in China
3. They have other legitimate reasons.
In China, local Public Security Bureaus will accept applications for citizenship. If applicants are abroad, citizenship applications are handled at Chinese embassies and consular offices. After they are submitted, the Ministry of Public Security will examine and approve or dismiss applications. If approved, it will issue a certificate of citizenship.
..and so I'm wondering how many poddies have applied for Chinese citizenship, and how many have been successful, particularly those with no Chinese ancestry.
New lesson idea? Please contact us.
