The UK government has announced a new immigration route that will allow British Nationals Overseas (BNO) citizens in Hong Kong to come to the UK. This will grant them five years limited leave to remain, with the ability to live and work in the UK.
The new immigration rules will allow BNO citizens the right to live and work in the UK for longer than was previously allowed and give a path to full British citizenship.
After five years, they will be able to apply for settled status and, after a further 12 months with that status, apply for citizenship.
The new immigration route for BNO citizens will be implemented in the coming months. Further details, including implementation dates, are yet to be announced.
