Welcome BN(O)s

Screenshot Official Guidance on BN(O)

The UK Government has published a “To Whom It May Concern” letter in both English and Traditional Chinese. The letter aims to help BN(O)s who encounter problems with opening a bank account, obtaining housing, and accessing employment. It also aims to help businesses and organisations in the UK to better understand the status of those on the BN(O) route, their rights and entitlements in the UK. BN(O)s coming to the UK may wish to present this letter to landlords, employers etc. for reference.
