UK to open citizenship path to Hong Kongers from Jan 2021

After China imposed a national security law on Hong Kong, the UK government announced that it’ll open a new special pathway to obtaining UK citizenship for eligible Hong Kongers from January 2021.

The change to immigration rules was introduced after Beijing imposed a new, sweeping national security law on Hong Kong.

“Today’s announcement shows the U.K. is keeping its word: We will not look the other way on Hong Kong, and we will not duck our historic responsibilities to its people,” British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said.
