NOPE !

Passports are issued to those born in a country, so if you are a foreigner to that country (China or any other one, including USA), you can not legally get a passport from it.

And, what exactly you can enjoy as chinese people, what you do not enjoy now like foreigner ? do you wish have lower salary ? right to vote for the pre-selected party members ? I really do not see any benefit of this. If they offer the US green card, thats different league, but residency permit u can get now also easily. nothing special for us, who aren't willing stay here all the life.

Actually there have been instances when the PRC issued passports to non-Chinese but these have been few in number.  For example, when there was still a sizeable number of Russians in Harbin, they had the choice of becoming either Soviet citizens, citizens of the PRC or remaining stateless with a Nansen passport.  In the end, it was 30% split for each category.  Many of these that had PRC passport immigrated nonetheless and became citizens of other countries.  At present, I only know of a handful of Westerners in China on PRC passports, mostly in Shanghai, and two stateless ex-American sisters in an old people's home in Harbin.

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
