United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - British Overseas Citizen (BOC) - Hong Kong (Before 1 July 1997)
The status of British Overseas Citizen is possible in this rare set of circumstances:
- Born in Hong Kong;
- Born before 1 July 1997;
- Stateless (i.e. without a nationality by law) on 1 July 1997; AND
- Father was not born in China.
This solution arises from a father's birth outside of mainland China, and the applicant's birth before 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
