需要多少錢?

How much does it cost?



1. BN(O) Visa Fee 簽證費用


你和你的家人每一個人都要付簽證申請費用。

You and your family members will each need to pay for the visa application fee.

  • 5年簽證 = 每人 £250

  • 或,

  • 簽證為2年6月= 每人 £180 (之後可以再延長多30個)

* 比起其他簽證渠道更便宜 (學生Tier 4 £348、工作 Tier 2: £610、家庭簽證: £1523 在英國外申請/ £1033 在英國內申請)


  • £250 per person for 5 years

  • or,

  • £180 per person for 2 years 6 months visa then renew for another 2 years 6 months

* Lower than other visa routes (Student Tier 4: £348, Work Tier 2: £610, Family Visa: £1,523 outside UK/ £1,033 inside UK)



如果你是使用 online 表格申請,而不是等到 23/02/21 用手機 app 應用程式進行申請

  • 你還必須額外支付 £19.20 來打指紋和相片登記 (biometric information 生物辨識)。

  • 然後,你將獲得一張 Biometric Resident Permit (BRP卡)。

  • 你還必須在收到護照後 90天內進入英國


等到2月23日或立即申請的主要分別

  • 如果你擁有 BN(O) 或 香港特區的智能護照 (護照正面底部的小符號),那麼你就可以等到2月23日,然後在香港或英國通過手機 app 進行申請 (掃描護照)。

  • 你也不需去簽證中心提交指紋和照片,也不會在護照上獲得簽證貼紙。

  • 成功獲得簽證後,Home Office 將為你提供數碼副本的BN(O)簽證。

  • 沒有進入英國的截止日期


對於在香港的朋友

在英國邊境申請 Leave Outside the Rules (LOTR) 已延長至3月底

建議:可以在2021年3月31日之前在英國邊境申請 LOTR,然後通過手機 app 進行申請 BN(O) 簽證


已在英國境內的朋友

  • 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 https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1971/77/section/3C



If you are applying using the online form, rather than waiting until 23/02/21 to apply via the Home Office digital app using your phone,

  • then you will also need to pay £19.20 for your fingerprints and photo taken as the biometric information.

  • You will then get a Biometric Resident Permit (BRP).

  • You will also need to come into the UK within 90 days after you received your passport


The main difference between applying now and applying on 23rd Feb

  • If you have one of these biometric passport (a small symbols at the front bottom of your passport ) - BN(O) or HKSAR, then you can wait until 23rd Feb and apply on your mobile app.

  • You will not have to attend an appointment to give your fingerprints and photo, and you will not get a visa sticker in your passport.

  • You will be given a digital copy of your BN(O) status once you have been successfully granted a BN(O) visa.

  • There is no deadline to enter into the UK.


For friends who are in HK

Leave Outside the Rules (LOTR) at the UK border has been extend until end of March.

Suggestion: enter the UK before 31st March 2021 with LOTR and then apply BN(O) visa through the app


Hong Kongers that are already in the UK

  • 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. https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1971/77/section/3C


 


2. 醫療附加

Health Surcharge


你和你的家人每一個人都要付醫療保健費。

You and your family members will each need to pay for the health surcharge.


需要在網上申請 BN(O) 簽證時支付這個 IHS 費用。這樣你將可以使用英國衛生處 (NHS)。

You pay the healthcare surcharge as part of your online visa application. This will allow you to use the National Health Service (NHS).

  • 成人5年 = £3,120

  • 成人2年6月 = £1,560

  • 小童5年= £2,350

  • 小童2年6月 = £1,175


  • Adult 5 years = £3,120 or

  • Adult 2 years 6 months = £1,560

  • Child 5 years = £2,350 or

  • Child 2 years 6 months = £1,175


你仍然需要有些時候支付一些NHS服務,例如處方藥物(取決於你住的地區),牙科保健和驗眼檢查。

You will still need to pay for some NHS service such as prescriptions (depends on where you live), dental care and eye tests.

  • 有關屋企的賬單或水電煤單

  • 簽證,居留許可證或其他移民文件(或彩色副本)*

**You will need to provide up to 3 documents that show your permanent home address:

  • Records of rent or mortgage payment

  • Household or utility bills

  • A visa, residence permit or other immigration documents (or a coloured photocopy) *

受你撫養的家庭成員將需要提供同住證明,證明其永久住址與你的住址是相同。

Your family members (dependants) will need to provide evidence that their permanent home address is the same as yours.


Tip: If children under 18 years old, Home Office should accept they are living at the same address as you as they are in your care. If they also have their own bank statement, then you can also consider providing this as their proof of address.



 

生活費用證明

Proof of living expenses


如果你在英國居住了12個月或以上,就無需證明生活費用

Tip: If you have funds that are from family or friends, then you must get them to sign a declaration and agree to give their financial support and provide the document for the application. (Part 3: Consent for the Home Office to verify information from third party sponsor in the application form)



除了住宿費用外,你還需要有至少與英國的 Income Support 相同的金額。

轉去 BNO visa

Switch to a BNO visa


如果你符合資格要求,並且你現時用其他不同的簽證 (e.g. LOTR, 遊客, Tier 2,4,5) 留在英國,你是可以申請轉換為BN(O)簽證。


If you meet the eligibility requirements, you can apply to switch to a BNO visa if you are already in the UK on a different UK visa (e.g. LOTR, visitor, Tier 2, 4,5).


Eligibility requirement 資格要求: https://www.gov.uk/british-national-overseas-bno-visa



你的英國簽證已過期或你6個月的遊客身份已結束

Your UK visa has expired or your 6-month visit has ended


如果你符合資格要求,你可以在以下任何一種情況下仍可以申請BN(O)簽證:

  • 你的英國簽證在2020年7月1日至2021年1月31日時己到期

  • 你6個月的遊客身份在2020年7月1日至2021年1月31日時己結束

你需要在2021年3月31日之前申請。


注意:

  • 對於在英國的朋友,如果你的簽證在 01/02/2021至23/02/2021 之間過期,你應該盡快申請 BN(O) 簽證。

  • 這些已獲有LOTR,你們需要在到期之前提交BN(O)申請表,否則有預期居留的風險。


If you meet the eligibility requirements, you can still apply for a BN(O) visa if either:

  • Your UK visa expired between 1 July 2020 and 31 January 2021

  • Your 6 month visit ended between 1 July 2020 and 31 January 2021


Then you will need to apply by 31 March 2021.


Note:

  • For those who are in the UK with visa expiring soon between 01/02/2021 - 23/02/2021, you should apply the BNO visa ASAP.

  • Those whose grant of LOTR is due to expire must submit an appplication before their permission runs out otherwise they risk overstaying.

  • 你的證明文件需要驗證

  • 你需要面試

  • 根據你的個人情況,例如,如果你有英國承認的犯罪及刑事定罪記錄

  • Of your personal circumstances, for example if you have a criminal conviction for an offence that is recognised in the UK

貼士:

  • * 如果你通過Digital App申請BNO簽證,則不會獲得生物辨識居民證(Biometric Resident Permit, BRP)。 這對於將來的你比較簡單方便,因為你進入英國未來5年無需要帶BRP卡。 通常擁有BRP卡的人士,如果忘記了帶,那你會好麻煩,也可能會影響你進入英國。


Tip:

  • *You will not get a biometric resident permit (BRP) if you apply the BNO visa via the digital app. This is simpler for future, as you don’t need to carry the BRP card with you for the next 5 years when you enter into UK. For those who have a BRP card, if you forget it then you are in trouble and may affect you entering into UK.
