United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - British Overseas Citizen (BOC) - Hong Kong (After 1 July 1997)
The status of British Overseas Citizen is possible in this rare set of circumstances:
- Born anywhere;
- Born after 1 July 1997;
- Born stateless (i.e. without a nationality by law); AND
- Parent was a BNO (or British National Overseas) at the time of birth.
This solution arises from a parent's birth (or descent from a father's birth) in Hong Kong, and the applicant's birth after the handover of Hong Kong to China on 1 July 1997.
Other 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 (Before 1 July 1997)
British Citizenship by Descent (Hong Kong)
