This is the official procedure for applying. Do you doubt this and think the Chinese government is publishing false material to raise the hopes of naive foreigners so they can laugh when their hopes of becoming a Chinese citizen are dashed?

So you know but have you actually tried it? Just follow the procedure and see if they let you or not. I would hazard a guess that it is nowhere near as difficult as people seem to be claiming. I think that in actual fact not many people want Chinese citizenship, mostly because they have to renounce their own citizenship in the process.
