Hong Kong Immigration to the United Kingdom Surges as Uncertainty continues

Finding a way to move, study or work in the UK can be daunting and challenging for Hong Kong residents. Yet now more than ever, London and other cities are an attractive proposition for relocation. As a result of the international status of London we have noticed an increase in requests from Hong Kong residents needing specialist advice on how to make the move to the UK.

Considerations for those relocating include work and study visas, finding suitable employment, and navigating unfamiliar legal territory. It is for this reason that Taylor Hampton Solicitors have a dedicated Asia Desk, dedicated to assisting with the process. The process begins with assessing your personal situation and advising you of the best option given your circumstances.

If you wish to immigrate to the UK from Hong Kong, steering your way through the many visa and immigration options and finding the quickest way to achieve your goals are important. Taylor Hampton will provide you with a tailored solution.

UK Government Website

There are many ‘Tiers’ of visa and all have their benefits, drawbacks and time limits. It can be confusing trying to understand the official UK Government website.

Added to this is the language barrier, which makes it hard to grasp the minutiae of the official documentation. Getting it right first time is crucial and you need to be comfortable that you are on the right course. Taylor Hampton Solicitors Asia desk provides both Cantonese and Mandarin language support from our solicitor, Loretta Pang. Loretta heads up Taylor Hampton’s Asia Desk and is from Hong Kong herself originally. This means that she is familiar with the process and the difficulties that those seeking to immigrate to the UK from Hong Kong might encounter.

Hong Kong is one of the few locations for which the UK has developed the Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) visa, enabling applicants from 18-30 to work in the UK for two years. This is one of many popular working visas. For those more experienced applicants, we regularly assist them with options for immigration to the UK from Hong Kong. These include the Tier 1 Innovator visas, Tier 1 Investors visas, Overseas Business visa and many more other visa types.

With the UK being one of the top cultural destinations anywhere in the world, Taylor Hampton Solicitors have also advised artists wishing to obtain Exceptional Talent visas in diverse areas of the arts looking to immigrate to the UK from Hong Kong.
