I need to fly to the US for a conference so I have been trying to fill out the ESTA application. My situation is a bit complicated. I am a UK citizen but I'm currently studying in Canada on a study permit. I also have an adult Hong Kong permanent ID card.
I'm confused about the following questions on the ESTA application:
- Have you ever been issued a passport or national identity card for travel by any other country?
- Are you now, a citizen or national of any other country?
- Have you ever been a citizen or national of any other country?
Does having a Hong Kong ID card mean I have to answer Yes to #1?
Does having a Hong Kong ID card automatically mean I am a Chinese national, and therefore have to respond Yes to #2 and #3?
My parents applied for a Hong Kong ID for me when I was really young, but I have never lived there and only visit once every 5 years or so. I also don't have a Hong Kong or China passport, only a UK one. Do any of these facts imply my Chinese nationality for the purposes of the ESTA application?
