    My brother and I applied for chinese naturalization almost a year ago and was wondering once we submitted do they tend to give you a letter or no. Do they just call you when the application is approved.We have been waiting for a long time without hearing anything, would really appreciate a reply thank you!!!

    Ages ago, they would send a letter out asking for more information. Did you get any such request?

    Nope, when we went to the immigration, the officer gave us a list of what documents we needed and we gave them when applying.

    Ok fair enough. Guess you have to wait or email them and find out if the application is still being processed. Until it is approved, it is being processed.

    Has anyone experience with the naturalisation process and foreign nationality? Have to provide proof that you haven't retained foreign nationality or will your other passport simply be considered as travel document like stated in the explanations?
    Will there be a test on the chinese language skills (verbal and written, cantonese and/or mandarin)?
    How long does the process take?

    Yes, you need to provide proof that you have renounced any other nationalities (or at least any other nationalities that HK Immigration is aware of). You renounce your previous nationality after you get a letter of "Approval in Principle" for your naturalisation as Chinese. So you then have a period of a few weeks where you will be without a valid passport.
    There's no formal test of language skills.
    Anything from 6-18 months.

    We got our Naturalization as a Chinese national approved after waiting for almost 20 months. We applied during the pandemic (Aug 2022). We never heard from them during this 20 months, they never asked or make a call for additional document.

    Currently waiting for the release of our HKID and HK passport.

    What do you mean by "Currently waiting for the release of our HKID and HK passport."?
