Round 2 of Mainland pressure, I see...
​CCP is an authoritarian regime and they are desperate for control of Hong Kong in all aspects. I am not surprised.

Is this not a bit of a clickbait title?
The way I read it, is that IF you have another passport, that you upload that passport instead.
Not asking anyone to 'ditch' anything, right?

I doubt that there are not many FA's who only hold the BNO passport. Every single one I have ever known has used the BNO as a sticking point to say that they are not Chinese. They all still held the HK Passport.

"they are not Chinese"


Here is the nationality and ethnicity question. If not Chinese what on earth are they?

I think they like to think that they are British nationals who were unfortunate enough to be born without landing rights in the UK. This hasn't been something recent like the changing of personal hotspots to ones being labeled against the government. It has been the case ever since I started. In the end we all like to think we can be above one system or another so that we are seen to have some power or control. This was just their form of protest.
