An American Dreams of Chinese Citizenship

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Thu Jun 28, 2018 1:02 am

Would you give up your citizenship to become Cambodian ? Or Chinese ?

The American with a dream of becoming a Chinese citizen

Eight years ago, he moved to China from the southeastern US state of Florida to take a job as a chief representative with an online Hong Kong company.

Today, he lives happily in Dongguan, an industrial city in central Guangdong province, with his wife, whom he met in Dongguan in 2010 and married a year later, and her daughter from a previous marriage.

Last month, Brent W – he declined to disclose his full name because of his online work combating financial fraud – achieved an important milestone: he obtained the vaunted “green card” that is emblematic of his status as a permanent resident and his right to live and work permanently in China.

It also put him on track towards achieving his ultimate goal: becoming a Chinese citizen.
“Although America is a great place, different things appeal to different people,” Brent W said.

Brent W’s success in getting permanent residency status is noteworthy, given that a high application threshold and strict controls have made China’s green card possibly the hardest in the world to get.

In the decade following the green card’s introduction in China in 2004, just 7,356 foreigners were granted permanent residency – a minuscule 1.2 per cent of the estimated 600,000 foreigners who lived in the country during that period.

They can take it off you for whatever reason they like and then hoof you out. Then you have to start from the bottom and buy your way back in.
