... but being born in Australia perhaps means he is an Australian Citizen, so not stateless. Perhaps his father is Australian.
Right, so this is not applicable to the OP. But your explanation - if applied universially - could cause statelessness to other overseas born ROC citizens who have no other citizenship.
Not the case in this situation is it? The OP has Australian Citizenship. NO need to mention things that do not apply in this case
In your posts you already admitted your are not aware of many of the rules. Well intentioned posts but they are not in fact relevant to the OP's situation.
I mentioned this because I am trying to get a better understanding of what the rules are. Not that many people have done what the OP is trying to do, even fewer have helped others do it more than once, and the one official page that I knew of that described this process (the TECO Boston page about ROC passports) turned out to be completely false.

And yes I have been a stateless ROC National so I fully understand about this ok. I have had the ROC Passport without an ID Card, I have later on obtained my Hukou then ID Card ok by completing the one year of residency here to qualify for my Hukou and ID card..
I am aware of this. You don't need do anything to establish your credibility to me.

What are the eligibility rules that OP would required to meet? (Normally, I would not ask this sort of question, but considering the level of misinformation out there about this topic it seems wise to ask an expert.) So far, I've only been able to infer two of them from your posts on this thread: having a ROC National as a parent and being a minor.
