英政府擬改規例 
伴侶或可與主申請人分開時間申請 BNO 簽證
13-09-2021
[立場新聞]





英國政府於 9 月 10 日公布《移民規例修訂文件 (Statement of changes to the Immigration Rules)》,內容涉及 BNO 簽證。現時 BNO 簽證主申請人的伴侶,必須與主申請人一同申請 BNO 簽證;熟悉 BNO 事務的英國律師文光向《立場》解釋,修訂後英國政府或容許主申請人的伴侶與主申請人分開不同時間申請簽證。此外,已婚配偶亦不再須證明與主申請人一同居住。如無意外,修訂計劃於 10 月 6 日生效。


修訂對伴侶受養人 (dependent) 的關係條件作出改動。修訂前,伴侶受養人必須是 BNO 簽證主申請人的伴侶(即必須在申請當中);而在更改條文後,就算主申請人已獲批 BNO 簽證(即申請完畢),其伴侶仍可被視為受養人申請人。


現時,BNO 主申請人的伴侶,必須與主申請人一同申請 BNO 簽證。文光解釋,修訂文件似乎說明,文件生效後,就算主申請人已獲批 BNO 簽證,其伴侶仍可申請簽證。


此外,文光指,現時 BNO 簽證伴侶受養人須與主申請人來自同一家庭,一般來說即共同居住,但修訂後,若雙方已婚,就算分開居住,受養人的身分亦可獲承認。文光指,修訂將容許已婚但未同居的配偶,以受養人身分申請 BNO 簽證。不過,申請人須在申請時提交證據,證明雙方關係真確。


不過以上只適用於「已婚」配偶。換句話說,若雙方是未婚伴侶,受養人仍須與申請人同居最少 2 年。


惟文光指,已婚配偶就算不須證明他們來英前同居,他們亦須要在到達英國後,有意同住生活。


文光強調,修訂文件解讀僅供參考,有意申請者不應視為正式法律意見。
