@22.214.171.124: Why not instead of edit warring we discuss the issue. Here is the relevant text: "On 23 June 2016, the British electorate voted to leave the European Union in a nationwide referendum. It is expected that the UK will invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and leave the European Union within two years, meaning at that stage, British passport holders will cease to be EU citizens and EU citizens would also cease to have EU rights in Britain."

About SARs of China
Hong Kong and Macau are special administrative regions of China which means there are no "nationals" or "citizens" in those areas, Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR passport holders are all Chinese citizens . As a reasult, instead of "Hong Kong" and "Macau", "Hong Kong, China" and "Macau, China" should be used.--Whisper of the heart 19:39, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

Copied Text for the Purpose of Merging Pages
|Text and/or other creative content from this version of Visa policy of the United Kingdom was copied or moved into Draft:Immigration Policy of the United Kingdom. The former page's history now serves to provide attribution for that content in the latter page, and it must not be deleted so long as the latter page exists.|
- I think that this will create a more cohesive and page where people can find infornation the complete immigration system rather than fragmented pages that only give only cover part of the topic.
- It appears that this was resolved in May 2020. A new merge proposal has appeared at the top of the page dated Dec 2020, but no such new discussion seems to exist, so I intend to delete the merge template from the top of the page.
Nevertheless, I'll give my 2p: It is standard across Wikipedia for each country to have a "Visa policy of xx" page. What all of these pages have in common is that they focus on entry clearance for short-term visits. The UK in particular has a clear distinction between "visas" for short-term entry and "residence permits" for long-term immigration status. The topic of immigration statuses is vast, complex and almost entirely unrelated to general permission to enter the UK with/without a visa. I believe these pages should remain separate and that any irrelevant information about immigration status should be moved to Immigration policy of the United Kingdom. The immigration policy of the United Kingdom page requires significant work, but that is a separate issue!
