Petition Add British Hong Konger and Hong Konger to Government list of ethnic groups

Call on the government to add 'British Hong Konger' and 'Hong Konger' as options for the ethnic groups recommended for use by the government when asking for someone’s ethnicity. This is how we see ourselves and our identity and ethnicity in Britain.

More details

Other British Asian ethnic groups have options to select as British Indian, British Pakistani, British Bangladeshi. Therefore British Citizens from Hong Kong and British National Overseas (BNO) passport holders as British nationals should be able to select as British Hong Konger.

Hong Kongers holding HKSAR passport should be able to select their ethnicity as Hong Konger.
