China won't recognise UK overseas passport for Hong Kong residents

Jan 29, 2021 17:10 IST

China said on Friday that it would not recognize the British National Overseas passport as a valid travel document or for proof of identity from January 31. The announcement comes as Britain prepares to open its doors to millions more residents of the former colony, following a security crackdown by Beijing. 

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government has promised to provide long-term sanctuary for Hong Kong residents who want to leave the territory.
