II want to get viet citizenship. However, one thing that scares me most is the China- Vietnam war or any war. As china relies on heavy footsoldiers, being a future vietnamese citizen makes me think what happen if the country requires one to serve as a foot soldier or any soldier. As a viet citizen, they regard us us their citizen and follow vietnamese law. When Vietnam is invaded in the north by China or any other territorial dispute they will need menpower. Vietnam has done it before, when they drafted people to be in the war.
Any detailed insights on that ? I do not want to serve any war.
Good question...I am curious about this also. By the way, another option is to get a 10 year passport as I have stated before, which I plan on doing. Not technically a citizen but you can stay without hassle. In the case of your question, , as much as I understand, you would not be obligated to serve if something like that occurred.
