New Baby - Citizenship or Residency...

Postby daryl_ks » 04 Jul 2005, 11:14

There is probably already a topic on this somewhere on Forumosa but I was unable to find it...

Anyway, my new baby daughter was born 3 weeks ago in New Zealand to a kiwi dad and a Taiwanese mum... I am pretty familiar with how her citizenship and stuff will go after having been born in NZ, but what is the case for her in terms of Taiwan? Will she just get a JFRV like me when we return to Taiwan or does she, as the daughter of a Taiwanese national, qualify for Taiwanese citizenship as well as NZ???

Any help would be greatly appreciated as well as any useful web links.

Cheers!

Daryl

You wife can contact the TECO office in NZ and apply for your daughters citizenship by descent.

Your daughter will need to be registered on your wife's household registration documents.
