The Home Office UKVI is planning to open the Hong Kong BN(O) Visa for applications from January 2021. The Home Office, UKVI will make new Immigration Rules for the Hong Kong BN(O) Visa in the Autumn 2020, with an associated Fees Order.

The new Hong Kong BN(O) Visa will allow BN(O) citizens to reside and work or study in the UK, with a pathway to settlement (also known as permanent residence or indefinite leave to remain) and then citizenship. The Home Office UKVI has set out a policy statement how the new Hong Kong BN(O) Visa will operate.

The BNO visa UK will be granted for an initial period of either 30 months (with an option of extension for further 30 months) or 5 years and upon completion of 5 years with BNO visa in the UK, you will be entilted to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) as BNO. After one year of grant of Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), BNO citizens will be able to apply for either naturalisation as a British Citizen or for registration as a British Citizen.
