Hong Kong: British National (Overseas)

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN 98320, tabled on 5 January 2022

Hong Kong's Mandatory Provident Fund Authority is unfairly disrupting people's livelihoods by refusing to accept the BN(O) visa when Hong Kongers apply for early withdrawal of their pensions. This is preventing Hong Kongers from accessing funds they are entitled to. The Government has raised our concerns with the relevant Hong Kong authorities.
