UK Immigration Expenses | BNO | JiaYu

From January BNOs will accept application processes, so let's see how much UK spending fees can be.

The British government announced on its official website yesterday (22) that the "Hong Kong BN (O) Visa" will be officially accepted on January 31 next year, meaning that the success of BNO equal rights, we can officially start to carry luggage, transfer money to the United Kingdom, ready to go to the United Kingdom to start a new life! Before you buy a plane ticket to go, you may question: How much money do I need to prepare to immigrate to the UK?

BNO visa details
As last announced, all persons holding BNO status and their family members (who must normally reside in Hong Kong) are eligible to travel to the United Kingdom together, study or work freely, and after five to one year of legal residence in the United Kingdom, they will be able to apply for naturalization in the United Kingdom after passing a certain level of English and passing the UK citizenship test.

There are no quotas for BNO visas. Visas are available for 30 months or 5 years, with a lower visa fee than other visas, and a five-year visa of £250 and a 30-month visa of £180.

How much money is needed for six months?
The British Governmentnoticementions that the applicant must prove that he has sufficient funds to financially support his family for six months in the UK. What about proof? Here's some similar requirements for other visa requirements in the UK:

Number of applicantsAdditional funds requiredA total of six months of funds required
+ Spouses£18,600£9,300
+ Spouses
+ One Child
+ Spouses
+ 2 Children
+ Spouses
+ 3 Children

As for the side funds to prove acceptance by the British Government? Details can be returned to my earlier article →英國政府公布BNO平權方案! 出發英國要預幾錢喺戶口?

UK daily expenditures?

First of all, you have to ask yourself a question: which city do you choose to live in when you go to England? Well, there can be a big difference between the cost of living in a city. Here are a few short cost-of-living statistics for several popular cities:

City Centre
Renting a 3 bedroom property
Water, Electricity & Gas£168£138£202£114
Internet Utilities£95£92£75£88
Monthly basic expenses£4,732£2,572£2,395£2,113

Of course, the cost of living in London is the most expensive! So there are people in Hong Kong who choose Manchester City, Bristol and even Glasgow, which have lower living standards.

What about the necessary visa fees?

Visa fees
(30 months / 5 years) £180 / £250
£1,000 / 1,440
Medical examination fee (depending on the clinic)
(Ages 11 or older) HKD 900
(Ages 11 or younger) HKD 450
Immigration Health Fee
(Immigration Health Surcharge)
(Age 18 or over) Each person per year £624
(Age 18 or under) Each person per year £470
Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)
Refers to the current fee, each person £2,389
Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) (not yet published) (not yet published)
Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) Each person £229
Naturalization application fee (not yet published)
Referring to the current fees,
(18 years of age or older) from £1,206 per person per year
(Under 18 yrs) £1,012 per person per year
£31,818 / 32,258

That is to say, a family of four to the United Kingdom for 6 years, live in Glasgow, rough estimate of the minimum total expenditure will be £185,644, the difference is expected to be more than 1.9 million HKD! Of course, if you go to the UK, you'll get back to work, or invest, and so on.

經常會有唔同嘅朋友問,成功移民嘅定義係咩?時常聽到嘅永居即係咩意思?同入籍又有咩分別?喺移民公司嘅角度睇,其實當一個人或者一個家庭成功取得永居身份後,就已經等於移民。跟住不如即刻睇下永居同入籍嘅分別,以及唔同國家對永居年期嘅要求啦! 永居 VS 入籍 永居即擁有在某國合法居住、工作、讀書、自由出入境嘅權利等,同時為當地稅務居民,可以享有不同福利及津貼,例如醫療、房屋、借貸等。 而入籍代表你正式成為該國公民,亦有可能要放棄原有國籍(視乎移民國家接唔接納雙重國籍)。入籍後同永居身份最大嘅分別就係是否擁有投票權、選舉及被選舉權,以及申請政府、公共機構的工作嘅權利。 永居 入籍 居住權 ✓ ✓ 工作、讀書權 ✓ ✓ 自由出入境 ✓ ✓ 申請福利或津貼權 ✓ ✓ 投票權 ✓ 選舉及被選舉權 ✓ 申請政府、公共機構權利
