BN(O)已是歐盟公民

Britishhongkong.com創辦人國寶豬果然厲害,他找到了英國駐冰島大使館,以及冰島入境部門的資料佐證,本人很相信,至少在冰島一地,BN(O)已經獲享歐盟公民,或歐洲經濟共同體國民待遇。

先看以下英國駐冰島大使館網頁:

http://www.britishembassy.gov.uk/servlet/Front?pagename=OpenMarket/Xcelerate/ShowPage&c=Page&cid=1025188506816

留意以下句子:Iceland is a member country of the EEA, which entitles British Citizens, British Nationals Overseas and British Overseas Territory Citizens to work or reside in Iceland, providing they obtain a Residence/Work Permit from the Directorate of Immigration.

再看以下冰島政府入境部門網頁

http://www.utl.is/english/visas/no-visa/

冰島將British National(Overseas)計入GREAT BRITIAN,而不是香港

http://www.utl.is/english/residence-permits/eea-members/eea-countries/

EEA National中,包括GREAT BRITIAN,按歐陸法系講法,BNO已是EEA National,冰島政府和英國駐當地使館如是看,還不file close?

大家應該明白沒有歐盟國家夠膽在BN(O)上蓋印,英國想被人告上歐洲人權法庭一回事,但沒有歐洲國家想陪英國一齊膠。

註:為免有五毛黨混淆,擾亂視聽,我要澄清幾個名詞,British Citizen即是英國公民,British Overseas Territory Citizen,即之前的BDTC,現時英國各屬土的國籍身份,在BOTA 2002中,他們已是有權得到英國公民身份。British Overseas Citizen,係英國部分殖民地,包括馬來西亞和東非,沒有取得新獨立國家國籍的遺民,絕大部分BOC已在2002年的新Immigration Act中有權取得英國公民身份。

  1. 我絕對相信冰島不會是搞錯,既然冰島政府可以分辦出BC、BN(O)、BOTC,就理應知道BPP、BS及BOC的存在,但只視前3者為EEA公民,當中就只有BN(O)未能entitle to BC。

    當然這是一個重大的發現,不過始終冰島只是EEA而不是EU,情況會有一些分別,恐怕未必能以此為據篤定BN(O)已經取得居歐權。

    最膠的情況是BN(O)根據里斯本條約而直接成為歐洲公民,但礙於英國國籍法未能成為英國公民,到時憑BN(O) – 一本英國護照可以在歐盟自由定居,但偏偏在英國受出入境限制,情況可謂膠到無朋友。

  2. 如果英國再不修法,就真的出現勁硬膠的結果,屆時英國真的俾人恥笑又恥笑。

    作為英國人的我,真的不得不對Home Office班膠官搖頭又搖頭。

  3. mayonnise,你提供的網頁有以下耐人尋味的話:

    As the holder of a British passport, you may travel to France up until the expiry date of your travel document.

    即係BNO入去法國,可以逗留到護照完結為止,呢個係歐盟公民的待遇。

  4. 在護照上唔蓋印的最大意義,就是without any immigration control,基本上,法國警察見到本無蓋印的BN(O),而持有BN(O)又是經機場入境,警察見到佢打工都無符。

    個stamp本身,就是immigration control

  5. BN(O)响英國以外EU地區才會被視為英國/EU護照, 就正如响英國入境唔可以排EU隊而响其他EU國家則可以!!

    二十一世紀一大膠事!

    又補充: 我九月由挪威番英國, 一時心急, 填唔切張膠form(landing card) 填到一半未寫完, 個官員竟然叫我唔使寫啦….???

    …我希望係一種啟示

  6. 但一般情況下,BNO + UK Residence Permit應該要寫Landing Form

    無Landing Form俾你過,係會有Audit問題,除非英國內政部已經唔打算Audit,呢個亦可能係香港申請UK Residence Permit免費的原因。

  7. mayonnaise:
    因為根據現行法律,隨左BC外,所有其他英國護照仍然受Immigration Act 1971的入境權限制,所以先要landing card。

  8. “As the holder of a British passport, you may travel to France up until the expiry date of your travel document.”

    I think the sentence merely means that you can enter France within the validity of the British passport, it does not mean that the holder can stay in France indefinitely. Note: this sentence is ALSO applicable to some British passport holders (BPP, BS, BOC without ROA) who needs a Schengen visa to enter France.

  9. I agree with Sam regarding the statement in the French consulate website.

    I took the train from Switzerland to France once on a TGV where the French border control checked our passports on board. The strangest thing was: a guy sitting next to me with a French national ID card + Swiss residence permit got asked a few questions and I flashed my BNO and he didn’t ask me a thing and give me back the passport in 5 seconds.

    I am really crossing my fingers now to see when they make a clear statement on the british consulate HK website that BNOs are now considered as EU citizen.

  10. 膠登好多傻仔話世澤兄喎
    不過我發現佢地 d 英文反而要讀多 d

    留意以下句子:Iceland is a member country of the EEA, which entitles British Citizens, British Nationals Overseas and British Overseas Territory Citizens to work or reside in Iceland, providing they obtain a Residence/Work Permit from the Directorate of Immigration

    如果 BN(O) 無權冰島工作, BC 一樣無
    唔知班高膠仔點睇文?

  11. 成班傻仔
    佢地可能以為一本bc護照就真係任住.. 打橫行
    如果一個British citizen要去Iceland
    入境只會比3個月時間
    如果想留耐d(more than 3months)就要申請Permit…
    如果持有permit reside 到某一個period
    就可以轉做permanent resident
    再meet埋d requirement 之後一個british citizen先可以入籍……

  12. 話時話….

    英國都好似向逗留英國超過6個月既bno持有人發出Residence/Work Permit…. 仲有係免費添….
    持有Residence/Work Permit工作五年可轉Permanent Resident…. 讀書10年…… 一年後就可以登記做 bc….
    同時英國政府都會向長期逗留英國既瑞士公民免費發出Residence/Work Permit….. 好樣他們在英國居留….
    但其他非英國護照持有人, non EU citizen (eg. HKSAR passport)係唔可以做Residence/Work Permit既…. 佢地要簽證… 個名叫”ENTRY CLEARANCE”

  13. to KEN,

    請容我做少許更正:英國國民、EU國民、EFTA國民的叫Residence Permit, 其他國民的叫Entry Clearance。

  14. 果啲話人傻仔嘅膠登人,隨時係大陸俾錢果啲打手,或者喺左派學校讀到short咗嘅友仔,佢地對英文的理解能力僅限於Goodest English,我明白。

    咁鍾意做中國人,即刻同我退出英國國籍喇。

    如果各位知道邊啲膠登傻仔轉載呢度嘅人,請告知,我設立個page,要佢地自貼退出英國國籍或無英國國籍證明。呢啲港奸係要拎出嚟示眾。

  15. I have a friend who is studying in France with a student visa and residence permit. The visa is on his HKSAR passport. He really wants to stay there longer. Is it possible for him to renew his BNO and stay there longer?

  16. 唔該…想問下, 如果我用緊BNO, o係英國讀緊書, 有dependant residence permit到2012年, 我parents都o係英國做緊野, 不過未有居留, 咁樣去法國駛唔駛搞visa先去得?

  17. 我想問, 英國好似向逗留英國超過6個月既bno持有人發出Residence/Work Permit…. 仲有係免費?係咪真的? 我真的想知道係咪真的!因為本人想申請Working Holiday Visa在英國工作一年, 但是我想辦法怎樣在英國工作多四年, 我打過領事館只要證明我在英國五年, 就可以申請入藉!如果第一年我用Working Holiday Visa在英國工作, 往後我要怎樣做才可以延長我在英國工作, 請大家給我寶貴的意見?
