My View on Popular Stars Migrating to Foreign Countries
In recent years, many popular stars are reported to have migrated to foreign countries. For example, a reputable actress last year swore under the national flag of Singapore to become its citizen. She is claimed to have a Singaporean husband. Although those popular stars have the natural right to choose their nationalities, and there are various reasons for them to make such decisions, once they have migrated to foreign countries, they are no more citizens of PRC. While some people hold that it is their natural right to migrate to any foreign country, others categorize those stars in the group of traitors in peacetime.
As far as I am concerned, their naturalization from China to foreign nation is not acceptable. Firstly, I agree with many observers that those stars have intentions of evading taxes. According to the relevant articles in tax regulations, stars that have changed their Chinese citizenship will be entitled non-citizen taxpayer status provided the duration and residence meet required standards. This policy indicates that their earnings outside China are tax deductible. Besides, since these stars are no longer Chinese citizens, they will receive preferential treatments such as tax reduction within certain period if they establish their own businesses in China. Though there are no sound evidences on the relationship between tax evasion and migration, we are still justified to claim that tax evasion has been taken into consideration by those stars based on various news coverage and columnists’ observations.
Secondly, many stars take advantage of migration to have more babies. Due to the implementation of family control policy in China, the majority of families shall only have one child. Once they are still citizens of PRC, they are not permitted to have a second child. However, there are no such family control policies in many foreign countries. In some countries, birth rates are on the decrease to such an extent that the authorities have to encourage young parents to have more babies by providing additional welfare programs. This point can be illustrated by a famous director’s case. He currently holds the passport issued by the government of the United States and fathers two lovely sons.
On all accounts, those stars migrate to foreign countries for their own interests. But they should not forget the fact that it is China that gives them the opportunities to become reputable. In return, it is their responsibility to repay their motherland, instead of deserting China by changing their nationality in their own interests.
