My son (eldest, 11 years old) was born in HKG 2006. And, his ROA is established in his birth certificate.
He is absent from Hong Kong for over 5 years now.
I (father) hold chinese nationality (HKSAR passport ) after my son's birth. We are all settled overseas due to my employment.
My other 2 younger kids hold HKSAR Passport (by birth) and they were born overseas and never visited HKG yet.
We plan to come back to HK in 2 months to get my son's first HKID as he has turned 11 years old end 2017.
My question is:
1) whether he will be eligible for his ROA HKID normally (being a kid)? OR
2) his status may have turned to RTL (right to land) anyway? OR
3) the immigration will ask us to apply for Verification of Eligibility of ROA first before issuing his HKID?
We have only about 10 days to stay in HKG to do the application process.. and we have to return due to his studies etc.
Thank you for guidance on this on what his current status might be.
Additional Note: I applied for Chinese naturalization to him early 2017 through the chinese consulate here.. and his naturalization was unsuccessful (after 1 year of process) without any reason given.
