SETTLE in the UK
It is estimated that 5.4 million Hongkongers and their dependents hold the BN(O) status. It is reported that during the first 10 months of 2020, some 216,398 BN(O) passports were issued, roughly 5 per minute. The UK Government estimated that about 600,000 will arrive in the UK to take advantage of the BN(O) Pathway to Citizen scheme.
Hongkongers in Britain (HKB) was invited by the Greater London Authority (GLA) to draw up recommendations for services that should be made available to incoming immigrants. In partnership with organisations Hackney Chinese Community Services (HCCS) and the Hong Kong Assistance and Resettlement Community (HKARC), the group drafted a nine-page report, which it presented in January at a meeting with the GLA, the Metropolitan Police, and London Councils.
On their website, Greater London Authority (GLA) introduced our work, as well as the cooperation with Hackney Chinese Community Services and HKARC, on its official website.
