Hong Kong BN(O) Visa

In the month of May 2020, the Chinese communist party imposed the "National Security Law" in Hong Kong. This has been seen by the UK as a violation of the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration on Hong Kong. The UK sees it as an act of undermining the "one country, two systems" existing in China. In the wake of this, the UK has decided to open a new immigration route called Hong Kong BN(O) visa to the BN(O) citizens. This new Hong Kong BN(O) visa will be launched from January 2021.
