"Yes" to both. Parents worked/settled in the UK for years, got Brit passports, married, then I came along...Were you parents settled in the UK at the time of your birth? Were you born before 1983 (thereby automatically acquiring British citizenship at birth)? If yes/yes, then you do not have Chinese nationality. Otherwise you may already have Chinese nationality & therefore eligible for a HKSAR passport.
Yeah, been there 3-4 times, and the US twice, plus other places where an HKSAR passport would not help as much... So, guess no use except if I lost or mislaid my BC one (and that has happened to silly ol' me a coupla times!).Anyway...the British Citizen passport is vastly superior to the HKSAR passport for international travel purposes. I can't think of any good practical reason why you should want the HKSAR passport as an alternative travel document for international travel purposes ... It's even more convenient to use a BC passport to enter Taiwan!
And so, Steven-from-Holland's case appears to be different...
Good of you all to clear that one up for me.
