Give up your US one, first, then you can apply for an ROC one. If you're below 35 or so, expect to be drafted. Several people posting here have done so. There are threads on the subject.

I have to sacrifice my US citizenship just to have an ROC passport?

hardly seems tempting, does it? and you'll eventually be a citizen of the PRC if things keep going the way they are, which is another joy to contemplate.

Well never mind it's very convenient when you go to China to know you are not an illegal immigrant and that you can legally work. :roflmao:
It's such a pleasure living in a world where everyone is in such a hurry to be outraged over someone else’s trivial comments
