I think Jews the world over automatically have duel citizenship, at least I believe they do in the US. I also heard that Ireland does this for the Irish in other countries.

I don't know if this is absolutely true, as I think I read this somewhere and as I am neither Jewish not Irish, it didn't apply to me.

Whatever your nationality is, and perhaps if you have direct ancestors who were actually from those countries, perhaps it would open a door or two for you.

How hard is it to work and live in China? Would a person be able to stay for 3 months and re-enter to avoid problems with their visa?

Sorry, but I had to laugh out loud with this one....as I think you mean dual citizenship as that duel paints a totally different picture!

Stupid me. THanks a lot. I have been making some of these lately. Partially, in all honesty, it is my new keyboard, but in this case, it is just sloppy thinking through an old mind.

Thank you, again.

Err... I did the research and guess what? You can't buy!!

You can lease through a trust and pay a fee each year. It's not the same as owning the property

Buying a House in Mexico

Also the government of Mexico can take back any property you have in restricted zones

Well, read what you posted. You can buy at but it's called a lease. It can be inherited and sold and the lease can be renewed after 50 years. It's the same as buying but with different terminology. Like I said, thousands of expats own land in Mexico. You can equivocate about the words used but the concept is the same.

I was hoping for some insight from people who are actually doing it. I know there are a few on this board who have been doing this for years in many countries. Maybe I'll start a seperate thread. But thanks for introducing me to search engines.

You seemed to be asking for factual information, not insight. Since CD doesn't have a specific Asia and/or China forum, perhaps a search for China expat forums might be useful. I found several.
