This does not apply to me in anyway, but I am generally curious about nationality laws of all nations. What is the ROC policy for adopting a child (under 18) of non-ROC citizenship? Is citizenship conferred to the minor if one of the parents is an ROC national and citizen? Is there a distinction between those who are only nationals and those who are citizens? Does residency matter (whether or not they are residing outside of Taiwan)? Finally, what if the adopted individual is above 18?
Any links to related laws (in Chinese) would be great. Also, similar information about adoption and nationality in South Korea and Japan would also be interesting too.
