    Try this. My friend has ***AO and tried to apply for an HKSAR and was told he had to renounce his British citizenship first

    Whether or not a HK permanent resident who was born overseas is a Chinese Citizen, depends on if his/her parents had already established the permanent residency (or acquired the citizenship) at the country where he was born, at the time when he was born. That's why a lot of people with ***AO were treated differently, with some getting a HKSAR passport while the others being rejected.

    HK permanent residents with ***AZ, ***AW, or ***AX (born in HK, Macau or Mainland) shown on their HKPID and of Chinese descendant are always treated as Chinese Citizens in Chinese territory regardless if they hold other foreign passports.

    Your friend will need to have his or her Chinese nationality application approved before applying for a HKSAR passport if he or she is currently not a Chinese national.
