My girlfriend is an ABC (American) and wanting to get her Taiwanese passport. She was born and raised in America, never lived here as a child only visited family for a few weeks at a time when she did come over. Right now she is 23 years old, and has been living in Taiwan teaching English. Her parents are both Taiwanese residing in America. Both her parents are dual citizens (America and Taiwan). Can she get her Taiwanese passport? And most importantly, does she have to give up her American citizenship? That is the most important question for us as she is not willing to do that, she wants to be a dual citizen.

American born but with parents from Taiwan..
The lass needs to apply for an ROC overseas CHinese passport. She can enter Taiwan on this.
She needs to live in Taiwan for 2 years to qualify for an ID card. It could be less I think as I know my neighbour travels overseas and when I did my ROC Nationality I just sayed for 12 months without leaving to get my ID card faster.
She does not need to give up her US nationality.
She will need to apply for a work permit to legally work here as an overseas chinese though.
