Chinese Information

The Nationality Law of the People's Republic of China regulates citizenship in the People's Republic of China . Such citizenship is obtained by birth when at least one parent is of Chinese nationality or by naturalization.

The law was adopted at the Third Session of the Fifth National People's Congress and promulgated by Order No. 8 of the Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress and effective as of September 10, 1980. The People's Republic of China does not recognise dual citizenship with any other country.

For Hong Kong residents, the law was adopted at the Nineteenth Session of the Standing Committee of the Eighth National People's Congress on May 15, 1996, a year prior to the Hong Kong handover and came into effect on July 1, 1997. The explanations concerning the implementation of the nationality of Hong Kong residents is that Hong Kong residents of Chinese descent are Chinese nationals, whether or not they have acquired the right of abode in foreign countries. In effect this means foreign citizenship under the respective foreign laws; the reason for referring to the foreign "right of abode" instead of foreign citizenship is avoid making an exception to, or breaching, the basic principle of Chinese nationality law of non-recognition of dual nationality)(s)(Overseas)(including Hong Kong)(British Nationality Act 1990)(or any other nation's)(including Hong Kong, Macau and the mainland)
