Moroccans gaining Taiwanese citizenship

This may have been covered before, but a colleague of mine is Moroccan and he was able to obtain Taiwanese citizenship without giving up his Moroccan passport. The Moroccan legislature refuse to allow people to do this, and the Taiwanese authorities accept it. Reciprocal, I guess.

Yep, if you prove they do not allow you to quit, it is OK by ROC. Not only Moroccans, but Japanese and other nationalities have this provision.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else

In that the Taiwanese don't have to give up their citizenship. It was a joke, of a sort.
