anybody who has been in the same situation or can help me with my HK id?
I was born in Germany and have German nationality. My father was also born in Germany and also has German nationality. My mother is a HK chinese, but acquired foreign nationality when i was born.
According to the chinese law, any person born abroad whose parents are both Chinese nationals or one of whose parents is a Chinese national shall have Chinese nationality. But a person whose parents are both Chinese nationals and have both settled abroad, or one of whose parents is a Chinese national and has settled abroad, and who has acquired foreign nationaltiy at birth shall not have Chinese nationality
Since my mother had settled abroad at the time of my birth, immigration concludes that i am not a Chinese citizen and am not eligible to have HK permanent status or any other status.
I am quite sure that many in similar cases (like many ABC`s) did acquire a HK id card or at least RTL and I knew that this `law` would be the main problem in my application.
I can go for a formal decision, but what should i do then?
help is very appreciated.
