The UK BN(O) visa scheme – taking the right steps and avoiding the pitfalls to secure your family’s future in the UK
bowers.law is part of an association of HK and UK professionals (GOHK2UK) drawn together from the Legal, Property, Education, Global Mobility Training, Tax and Wealth Management sectors who can provide a seamless one-stop-shop service for migration to the UK.
From 31 January 2021, the UK Government will implement the new BN(O) visa route for BN(O) citizens and their close family members. For those interested in settling in the UK the visa route offers a generous long-term route to not only settlement but British Citizenship and all the advantages that come with that status.
If you want to take the right steps and avoid the common pitfalls in the (complicated) relocation process, you’ll need to cover off some key considerations:
- applying for the correct visas to secure your route to settlement in the UK
- when to apply for your visas to ensure smooth processing and avoid delay
- planning to ensure that your future travel and movements don’t jeopardise your eligibility for permanent residence in the UK by understanding the rules around absences from the UK
- education for your children and securing first class schooling/tutors
- global mobility training for living and working in the UK
- tax planning and wealth management considerations
- property search and investment
