Should the USA REVOKE the visa-waiver free entry to the USA for ROC citizens?
…since a few hundred thousand of those who qualify for it can now be “dual ROC-PRC citizens” traveling under an ROC passport they acquired through purchasing a surrogate Taiwanese spouse?
WAKE UP, Homeland Security!!!
Why are Mainland Chinese spouses in Taiwan no longer required to renounce PRC citizenship in order to vote?
After they gain permanent residency, Chinese spouses need only stay two full years, with 183 days spent each year within Taiwan, to gain citizenship, register their residence with local household registration office and gain their ROC identification card.
THEY ARE ALSO NOT REQUIRED TO RENOUNCE THEIR PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA CITIZENSHIP.”
There are some 300,000 Mainland Chinese (PRC citizens) in Taiwan who are about to be allowed to vote in upcoming elections, whereas the ex-pat spouses of EVERY OTHER NATION who live in Taiwan MUST renounce citizenship of their home countries in order to do so.
“However, the Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU) has requested that Taiwan not loosen the restrictions on mainland spouses. Lawmaker Lin Shi-chia (林世嘉) noted that currently there are 320,000 mainland spouses who reside in Taiwan.
If the waiting period is indeed shortened, there will be an influx of 190,000 more voters who are eligible to participate in the 2016 presidential election, Lin said.”
“The main obstacle for many foreigners in Taiwan in applying for and getting Taiwanese citizenship is that at the beginning of the process you are required to renounce your original citizenship before you can continue with the application process.”
This action shows US clearly that Ma Ying-jeou’s government is DEFINITELY “PRO-REUNIFICATION UNDER PRC-CCP CONTROL”, and his government has OPENED THE BACK DOOR for PRC citizens to freely enter the USA… WITHOUT any need to apply for a visa/background check.
@Brother_Lewinski – Your derogatory comment are not appreciated, and your lack of investigative skills in searching for facts tends to make me think you are VERY LOW CALIBRE “lawyer”. As it says on my Y!A profile, I live in Taiwan, it’s 11AM here, and I have a wife.

Now, Brother, if you are actually unable to post an answer to the question according to Y!A guidelines, then at least set your ass to work in closing this loophole that has abruptly developed and presumably without consent of US Customs and Border Patrol. (yeah… US CBP welcomed me by name and proceded to rape my luggage the last time I popped over to the USA. You can have them check their computers, if you doubt me, and IF you have the clout to do so, Mr. Fancy Pants. PHHTtt!)
[psst.. uh… Bubba… Perhaps you’d like to add to your little bio,
“And, I am proud to run multiple accounts on Y!A so I can boost my points and reporting level.”]
The Watchdog, Colonel FOG, ROCAF.
Of course, you can try talking to the CIA or the ROC’s MJIB if you wish… but, they won’t tell you, Maggie,or scott b anything about me.
BA to George (Y!A is malfing again).
Comment: Nex can’t figure it out. You have a handle on it. PRC nationals DON’T have VWP privileges; ROC nationals were granted such only a few months back. New change to ROC immigration law allows ONLY PRC nationals (not other ex-pats here) to obtain ROC citizenship & passports as a dualie = 100K+ PRC –>USA
If in fact these people, the dual nationals, or anyone from Taiwan starts abusing the Visa Waiver program in large numbers, then that status will be revoked. Argentina and Uruguay both lost their status a while back. Taiwan had already been part of the Guam special Visa Waiver program for years. I haven’t heard of any abuse of that, have you?
