UK Welcomes HongKongers
The U.K. and Hong Kong have a relationship spanning over 180 years, and in 2021, a new leaf is turned with the new UK BN(O) visa route made available to HongKongers who are eligible British nationals. Together with other existing routes, the UK is expecting many HongKongers leaving their troubled home town and settling in the UK in 2021 and beyond.

SWHK UK Sanctions Report 2022
In recent years, thousands of Hongkongers fleeing state oppression have made Britain their home through the British National (Overseas) immigration route. As valuable as it has proved, this policy alone cannot be the sum of Britain’s full duty to Hong Kong. The government must now hold to account and directly challenge the perpetrators of injustice in Hong Kong.
In this report, we urge the UK government to impose sanctions on Hong Kong and Chinese officials guilty of systemic human rights violations in Hong Kong.
