    The Immigration Department web site mentions that whether you hold ROA is one consideration, but not a stated requirement (unless someone knows otherwise from first hand experience with the Immigration Department?)

    Fortunately, I got some official writing from back home and that was accepted.
    Morrison: can I ask what you had that proved that your parents were not "settled abroad"?

    To answer my own question: you do have to be HKPR (ROA) before you can naturalise as a Chinese Citizen of the HKSAR

    HKSAR Passport / Naturalisation as a Chinese national

    How difficult is it for a non-Chinese speaking HKSAR PR holder, to successfully apply for a HKSAR Passport (via naturalisation as a Chinese citizen route). The person has no immediate family members who are either Chinese speakers or of Chinese origin.

    @Mavs - several indians that I know have applied for a HKSAR passport and received it. The key is to show close connections to Hong Kong and lots of paperwork.

    Having said that, almost all the folks I know have gotten their passport about 10+ years ago. Not sure what the recent policy shifts are.

    Quite easy to be honest. Just finalised and had approval for mine recently.

    If you have no family connections, businesses, nor property here that's fine. However, you will need to show that you have sufficient funds, are highly educated, and have skills required and in demand in Hong Kong.
    If you do not speak Chinese, your English needs to be perfect.

    Quick question, how long was the process from application to approval?

    Not sure what passport you are applying for, but you certainly don't need any of this to apply for a HK passport once you are a Chinese national and HK PR.
