I find it kind of interesting that in order to have this concept of China citizenship that goes back to the original KMT claim of representing all of China, they therefore had to come up with this concept of Taiwan huji, which for all intensive purposes contains the bundle of what most people think of as actual citizenship rights. So effectively, a Taiwan ID card is what most of us would think of as a passport or identification card for a full citizen.

We are living in taiwan with our kids all of us on my spouse's arc, entered usung American passports, no nhi. We just had a child in tw and sent in documents to our accountants to process the newest additions arc. They come back and tell us they cant do it. The national immigration agency says as one parent is a citizen of Taiwan, this child is automatically a citizen of Taiwan. As we do not have hukou because we're Americans, we must register this child on a "relative's" hukou. Wtf? All of us entered on an American passport! Then we are supposed to get the child a tw passport, fly out, fly back using childs American passport, remove child from hukou, and then apply for arc. Can u even put an english name on a hukou? How does a "relative" explain why this child is on their hukou and not the parents?
So if one parent was born in tw, but no hukou, doesnt enter on a tw passport, still considered a "citizen"? Its confusing. There must be a clear definition of nationality vs citizen that I missed. Can someone direct me?
does anyone else read in here like they are planning to give him an ROC passport as soon as he steps one foot into this Island, and somewhere maybe, if he's still famous, push an electoral position on him?
Japan is another example - children born as ROC-Japan dual nationals need to renounce the ROC nationality or lose the Japanese nationality by age 22.
