To my knowledge there are no Chinese ancestors in my family the past 7 generations (trying to find out though...).
I don't want to give up my Swedish citizenship (we get free education, pensions etc worldwide...) for a Taiwanese one.
I have asked the Swedish government about re-applying for a Swedish citizenship once I become Taiwanese, but I will be required to live in Sweden for three years... no thank you!
So I'm looking into the option to BUY a passport from some small "banana republic", or other country. Inform the Taiwan government that my PARC should be changed to this new country, a month or so later apply for a Taiwanese passport and give up my "banana republic" citizenship.
1. Anyone knows where and how to obtain such a passport?
2. When I give up my "new" citizenship, will they check if I'm also citizen in other countries? Or do I need to give up ALL my citizenships?
You gotta be kidding me! Why would you want a Taiwanese passport? If so, I think the fastest way to have it is to marry a Taiwanese girl and then legally you can have a dual citizenship while you can still keep your Swedish one. It all sounds too weird to me that you want a Taiwanese passport but will consider working at somewhere else for 2-3 years. Sounds weird to me!
