United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - British Citizenship by Descent (Hong Kong)
A person could be registered as a British citizen where:
- they were born before 4 February 1997; AND
- they (or their their father) were born in Hong Kong.
This solution arises from a birth in Hong Kong before the handover to China and the birth before a key piece of legislation passed in the months before the handover.
British nationality solutions involving Hong Kong include the following:
British National Overseas (BNO)
British National Overseas (BNO) - Upgrade to British Citizenship
British Overseas Citizen (BOC) - Hong Kong (After 1 July 1997)
British Overseas Citizen (BOC) - Hong Kong (Before 1 July 1997)
