Britain's government announced on Wednesday that it will open a new special pathway to obtaining British citizenship for eligible Hong Kongers from January 2021.


In a statement, the Home Office said holders of the British National Overseas passport and their immediate family members can move to the UK to work and study.


The change to immigration rules was introduced after China imposed a new national security law in Hong Kong.
