香港永久性居民之國籍問題

我係80後,在香港出生,手持「香港永久性居民身份證」,有「回鄉證」,過往亦申請過「BN(O)」。

現有以下問題...

1. 我想問呢個情況下,係咪由於香港係中國既特別行政區,所以我既國藉係中國?

2. 如果我想入藉其他國家例如美國,英國,日本等,正常程序我要先放棄中國國藉,然後再入藉,咁我「香港永久性居民既身份」又會點呢?

3. 承上題,如果想KEEP住「香港永久性居民既身份」,係咪要36個月內返港一次呢?返港時間有無限制最短幾耐呢?

4. 入藉其他國家後,我仲可唔可以申請返「BN(O)」?(依家過左期未重開)

5. 如果我以「BN(O)」既護照去海外,我既國藉會係咩呢?

6. 如果我以「BN(O)」既護照入藉其他國家,我需唔需要放棄「BN(O)」既國藉呢?

好多問題同好複雜好亂,真係好唔意思。

先謝謝解答既人!!

Update:

我問得唔好, 故稍為補充

承Gary既答案

In my case now, if I want to become Japanese citizen, i have to abandon both Chinese and British nationality?

After renoucing my british nationality, can I retrive it?

As per Gary said, BN(O) holder does hold a british nationality?

Update 2:

And one point I need to double confirm, even if I became Japanese citizen, my HK permanent residence is still valid, isnt it?

What is the difference between HK permanent residence holder and HK SAR citizen?

HK SAR citizen = HK permanent residence holder with Chinese nationality?

Update 3:

To be frank, I dont care my Chinese nationality, I just do not want to renounce my British nationality.

But I have to get the Japanese citizenship for work...

P.S. Thanks 本週之星 & Gary for prompt reply!

Update 4:

Gary, possible to get your contact?

    1. Yes and no.

    2 factors affect you in becoming a Chinese (Hong Kong) citizen:

    a. You are born in Hong Kong, which is a SAR of China (partial of your questions);

    b. Your parents are Chinese-descent.

    As a fact, there are Indian-descent Hong Kong Permanent Resident who do not qualify for a HKSAR Passport, but a BN(O) Passport only. Those people are now British citizen by the act of the U.K, Parliament.

    2. Both the U.S. and the U.K. allow multiple citizenships. For Japan, you are correct that you must renounce your Chinese nationality (as well as British nationality). In term of Permanent Residence, most countries do not usually require the applicants to abandon the residence.

    3. Yes. No.

    4. Yes. See #2 for explanation.

    5. United Kingdom.

    6. It depends on the countries allowing multiple nationalities or not.

    3. Yes. Here is an example:

    2014-07-11 12:58:05 補充:

    A BN(O) Passport is eligible to be a registered voter once he/she has stay in the U.K. for 6 months, even using a visa (like Tier 4).

    Usually, visa holders are not eligible to vote.

    4. You will have to check with Japan. Due to language and cultural issues, the information is not really clear.

    5. In your own terms:

    HK SAR citizen - A Chinese citizen who has the right to abode in Hong Kong.

    無需放棄中國籍,你天生就是中國籍,你加入其他國籍是你意願,條件或限制由其他國家決定,沒規例你必須回港,你不回亦是永久性居民,其他國家就不一定。

    對啊﹗ 不論你放棄甚麼國籍,你的永久身分證是永久有效的。
