對於計劃在英國境內申請 BNO Visa 的香港人


如果你計劃在2021年1月31日申請BNO簽證,而你現時的簽證在1月31日當日或之後到期,那麼你無需轉換或申請LOTR。


英國有一條法例 根據《 1971年移民法》第3C Leave: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1971/77/section/3C

  • 如果你在簽證到期之前申請新的簽證 (BNO Visa),那麼你的居留日期將自動延長,直到你收到 Home Office 的決定。


對於仍希望在英國境內申請LOTR的人,請注意,由於COVID和假期的關係,可能不會在1月31日之前獲得LOTR身份。


如果你現時的簽證在2021年1月31日之前到期,請繼續閱讀以下內容。



For Hong Kongers who are planning to apply BNO Visa inside the UK


If you are planning to apply for BNO Visa on 31st Jan 2021 and your current visa expires on or after 31st January, then you don’t need to switch or apply for LOTR.


The UK law in Section 3C Leave under the Immigration Act 1971: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1971/77/section/3C


If you make a new visa application (BNO Visa) BEFORE your current visa expires, then your permission to stay will automatically be extended until you receive the decision from Home Office.


For those who still wish to apply LOTR inside UK, please beware that it is unlikely to get the LOTR status before 31st Jan due to the workload in relation to COVID and holidays.


If your current visa expires before 31st Jan 2021, please continue to read below
