The BNO Visa

Considering a move from Hong Kong to the UK?

Get started

If you’re considering moving to the UK from Hong Kong then you might be eligible for a British National Overseas (BNO) visa, in which case, financial planning should be a top priority.

The BNO citizenship is a type of British nationality created in 1985 that people in Hong Kong could apply for before the 1997 handover to China. The new BNO visa system, in place from January 31st 2021, allows BNO citizens and their close family to apply for two periods of 5 years to live and work in the UK.

It is estimated by the UK authorities that 5.4 million Hong Kong residents are eligible for the BNO Visa scheme and hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong individuals are expected to emigrate in the next few years.
