Travel Freedom IndexTM 2014 and Visa information of 206 types of Citizenship 2014 published

 

German citizens outplayed British citizens and top the ranking at Travel Freedom IndexTM 2014. British Overseas Territories Citizens, British Overseas Citizens, British Subjects and British Protected Person were granted 90 day visa free access to the Schengen Area.

Palau, Vanuatu, Mozambique and Madagascar citizens were added to TFITM 2014 calculation. Sovereign states with limited recognition by other sovereign states, with de facto control of their territories, were taken into account for calculation as these territories exercise their own immigration policy. These countries are namely Somaliland, Nagorno-Karabakh, South Ossetia, Western Sahara, Abkhazia, Transnitria, Northern Cyprus and Palestine. More, Territories in Antarctica were more precisely redefined according to the Antarctic Treaty. We believe that the above amendments would strengthen the reliability of the Index.

Written evidence submitted by BHK to the inquiry of ‘The UK’s relations with Hong Kong: 30 years after the Joint Declaration’ is now published by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons

 

BritishHongKong submitted a written evidence to the inquiry of “The UK’s relations with Hong Kong: 30 years after the Joint Declaration’ launched by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the UK Parliament on 06.10.2014. The written evidence was published on 13.01.2015

We ask the UK government to:

1. Restore the British citizenship of BN(O)s, who were CUKCs of Hong Kong.

2. Publish a clear foreign travel advice for different categories of British nationals.

3. Lobby foreign countries outside the EU for equal entry requirement for all categories of British nationals.

4. Promote BN(O) by recalling it as a form of British nationality that people could keep for life.

The report of The UK's relations with Hong Kong: 30 years after the Joint Declaration released

The report was released on 06.03.2015 by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons.

We appreciate that the committee tried to take a little step forward to urge the FCO to be diligent on the matter of the welfare of BN(O).

However, the report mislead readers that it is the matter of the EU to define BN(O) as UK nationals. We condemn, much to our regret, the committee's attempt at shirking the HMG's responsibility of recognising BN(O) as UK nationals for the EU purposes, while the Thatcher's government made a declaration on the definition of the term 'nationals' for the Community purposes in 1983. The irresponsible conclusion of the committee is simply putting the cart before the horse.

We again urge the House of Commons to end the 30-year human rights scandal by making path to citizenship for BN(O).
