I was reading up on Chinese nationality law about dual citizenship. I noticed the law states:
Article 9: Any Chinese national who has settled abroad and who has been naturalized as a foreign national or has acquired foreign nationality of his own free will shall automatically lose Chinese nationality.
So let's say a child is born in China to Chinese parents. The Chinese parents move to the United States and obtain green cards, and then naturalize before the child turns 18. Under U.S. law, children under the age of 18 who hold green cards when one of their parent naturalizes automatically acquires U.S. citizenship.
Under these circumstances, what happens to the Chinese citizenship of the child? In this case the child did not obtain U.S. citizenship on their own free will as it was given to them automatically.
Does this result in the child holding dual Chinese American citizenship?
