We’d like to hear from people who have recently relocated from Hong Kong to the UK.

There have been 34,000 applications for a new visa for people from Hong Kong seeking residency in the UK in just two months, the Home Office has revealed.

Since 31 January up to 3m Hong Kong residents who hold or are eligible for a British national overseas (BNO) passport can apply for a visa allowing them to live and work in the UK, in response to China’s sweeping national security law that is intended to crack down on pro-democracy Hong Kong protests.

In April the British government pledged that it would be setting up a £43m fund to help migrants from Hong Kong settle in the country.

We are interested in hearing from Hong Kong migrants who have come to the UK in recent months to settle, and about any difficulties they may have experienced, as well as positives.
