如何申請

How to apply


  • 家庭單位,必須一起申請

  • BNO 的主要申請人應該首先申請,然後獲取一個 reference number

  • 任何申請的家庭成員都需要在其申請表中加入此 reference number


  • If you’re applying as a family unit, you must apply together.

  • The main applicant who is a BN(O) should apply first and get their unique reference number.

  • Any family members applying will need to quote this unique reference number in their applications.


18歲以下的小朋友應該與父母雙方一起申請,但有一些例外。


18歲以下的小朋友必須在英國逗留期間與父母住在一起,除非有充分的理由不能一起生活。


Children under 18 should apply with both of their parents, although there are some exceptions.


Children under 18 must intend to live with their parents during their stay in the UK, unless there is a good reason why they cannot live together.


如果你家庭成員不同你一起申請 BNO簽證,他們將無法申請後加。

If your family members do not apply with you, they will not be able to apply for the Hong Kong BN(O) visa to join you later.



如果你或你家庭成員前後腳到英國,則可能並非所有成員都同時有資格申請 ILR,並且可能需要進一步申請延長直到規定的5年期限。

If you or your family members travel at different times to the UK, you may not all qualify to settle in the UK at the same time and may have to make further applications for permission to stay in the UK to meet the 5 years required.




 

定居身份

Settlement

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/hong-kong-british-national-overseas-visa-applications


Indefinite leave to remain (ILR)


在英國居住5年後,你可以申請 ILR


如果你已經在英國度過了一段定居之路(例如Tier 2 工作簽證),那麼這段時間將計入5年。

Tier 4 學生簽證 和 Tier 5 工作假期 不是定居途徑,因此不會計入5年期。


Once you have lived in the UK for 5 years you can apply for ILR.


If you’ve already spent time in the UK on a route to settlement (e.g. Tier 2 work visa), this time will count towards the 5 years.

Tier 4 and Tier 5 are not routes to settlement, therefore will not count towards the 5 years.


申請 ILR 時,你需要:

  • 符合英語要求

  • 通過英國生活測試(£50)

  • 在過去5年中的任何12個月內在英國境外停留的時間均不超過180天

  • 支付申請 ILR 費用

BNO 簽證是一條逃生的渠道,離開英國的日子不要算得太盡。


When apply for ILR, you will need to:

  • meet the English language requirements

  • pass the Life in the UK Test (£50)

  • have spent no more than 180 days outside the UK in any 12 months in the previous 5 years

  • pay a fee to apply for settlement


18歲以下子女及成年受撫養的家庭成員只可以在主要BNO申請人正在申請 ILR、或者已經獲得 ILR、或者已經是英國公民,才能申請 ILR 定居。


Children under 18 and dependent adult family members can only apply for settlement if the main BNO applicant is applying for settlement at the same time, or has already been granted settlement, or is already a British citizen.


但是 However, in the Statement of Changes in the Immigration Rules page 498

需要父母雙方正在申請 ILR、或者已經獲得 ILR、或者已經是英國公民,18歲以下子女才能申請 ILR 定居。
