Citizienship To Choose . . .

Wed May 09, 2001 9:57 am

If you could choose today to obtain anothers nation passport / citizienship, which one would you choose and why ?

Out of TAX reasons, I'd choose Hong Kong, although then my employer must commit himslef to raise my salary substantially, so I can make a good living there
(Peak, Harbourview ...).

From the point of living conditions, I'd choose Thailand or Vietnam, although Vietnam is still a bit unsafe.

Singparore is also a option, but then there is the money issue again (and I find it rather stupid to pay any speculative rent).

Well, that's just my first ideas, and you can alrdy see, that I am quite focussed on Far East.

What about you ?

You live in Colorado, right? I don't think your vote is going to help much... Bush took your state 51%-42%. I guess you could always waste your vote on Nader (5%).  Big grin

Germany (Half of one side of my family live there.)
(Both my parents are from German families.)

Canada.
New Zealand.

I'd be happy to have a passport from any country that *doesn't* particularly piss any other major countries off.

Cheers,

(I would hate to give up my Australian passport. The safest to have I think...)

I'm pretty lucky because I have three citizenships:

1. Canada (by birth) - Doesn't tend to piss of many other nationalities...easy entry into the US and easier to get US work permits.

2. United Kingdom (from my father) - Ability to live/work in any country in the E.U. with minimum hassles...as well as for visits.

3. New Zealand (by naturalization sp...?) - Can live/work/study in NZ and Oz.

I don't think I really need another citizenship.

I know my country is good at pissing off some others, but how often will that have any significant impact on my life?

Apparently someone (Aviatsiya) hasn't watched the Presidential debates in which Algore acted extremely arrogant, condescending, and downright boring.

Good sum-up, Chase.

I'm American...always have been, always will be...
Why would I want any other citizenship? I'm a citizen of the most powerful country on this planet. Trade that for anywhere else? I don't think so  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I'll stick to tourist visas if I want to go somewhere my passport alone won't take me.

I am fine. I have a British passport and Thai citizenship (my wife is Thai) so I have the best of both worlds!

Hey L-188! How dare you call yourself American? Every true Alaskan is Alaskan first and American only at tax time! I refer to myself as Alaskan, and when people say, "Oh, an American." I say, "No, I'm Alaskan." Dont' get me wrong, I am as patriotic as the next guy. But Alaska is about the last bastion of true freedom left, even in a country as great as ours. Luckily, most liberal pukes are allergic to the cold and dark winters! Let's keep it that way! Make our official state greeting: Welcome to Alaska... now go home!
