From Hong Kong to the UK

Britain and London have never been more popular with Hongkongers. Since the British National Overseas scheme was launched in 2021, enabling HK-ers and their families to apply for BNO visas, more and more people (currently the figure is over 80,000 and is expected to reach 300,000) have availed themselves of it.
