Can naturalized individuals with foreign passports be restricted by the Conscription Law of the ROC
According to Section 1 Article 5 of the “Conscription Regulations for Naturalized Aliens and Returning Overseas Chinese,” a male overseas Chinese entering the country using a foreign passport and who is of conscription age, is covered by the relevant regulations governing returning overseas Chinese. Also, according to Article 14 of the “Regulations for Exit of Draftees,” individuals of conscription age who have a registered household here in Taiwan and possessing dual citizenship, should use their ROC passports in entering and exiting the country. Those who enter using their foreign passports are still considered as being eligible for conscription and will be restricted from exiting the country (this restriction shall be lifted when the individual has rendered the mandatory military service).
