Q: Does the U.S care?

I'm going to apply to get my sons a U.S passport, just as a backup incase.  Will the U.S embassy ask us to give up my sons Chinese Passport first? Or let it slide?

It is always good to know the answer, or at least have some info and an expected answer, before asking a bureaucrat anything.

Nope they wont. I only know of a few cases but in every instance they dont ask for shit. Most normal countries recognize dual citizenship. They dont think much of China and their damn rules. Its not the US governments job to police chinese laws.

Ive met i think 4 that have done the same with their kids and never met one that regretted it.

Yup, as Mike said, the US dont care, and they wont tell the Chinese people.

But I knew a woman who had two passports, UK and Chinese. She got caught because she left China on her Chinese documents and entered HK on her UK one. They caught her because she tried to get back into China on her Chinese passport which did not have a HK exit chop. They sent her to the goldfish bowl office and demanded to see other passport. They ripped up her Chinese passport in front of her and sent her back to HK. Now she needs a visa to enter China, which is really strange given that she is Chinese born.

I can't say for certain from first hand experience, but a friend of mine who moved from China to the US as an adult had her passport taken, and torn up when she got an American one. I'd say to check with people who have had the experience, just to make sure.

USA does recognize dual-citizenship for minors. Check the embassy. Not us.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
