Moving to the UK from Hong Kong? Keith Michaels can help
Whether you’ve moved for more green space, to escape the city, or you’re relocating for work, the UK offers a range of opportunities.
Hong Kong has a similar range of policies in comparison to the UK, but some insurance companies don’t look at this the same. At Keith Michaels, our insurance is tailored to every individual, and so we look at you as a person, rather than a set of figures.
No History of Insurance in the UK? No Problem
If you’re moving here for work on a long-term work permit, student visa, or are looking to emigrate to the UK, you may not have a UK accepted insurance history. In Britain, insurers look at UK specific data, including your driving licence and more. Hong Kong residents often don’t have access to this data.
Here at Keith Michaels, we are a specialist motor insurance broker who provides bespoke schemes for customers who may not have a widely accepted insurance history in the UK. If you’ve emigrated from Hong Kong, our specialist expat team will assess your individual risk, and find a policy specifically for your needs.
Import Insurance for Your Hong Kong Car
Whether you’ve got a market specific car, such as the Toyota Sienta or the Nissan Elgrand, or want to bring your prized possession over to the UK, our specialist import insurance will cover your car and all it’s unique aspects.
Hong Kong cars may not always fit traditional high street insurance specifications, but at Keith Michaels we tailor every policy to the customer and their car
This is where Keith Michaels come in. We offer specialist import car insurance, and our teams have extensive knowledge of imported cars and connections with underwriters that are second to none.

Honest guys. Very straight forward.

I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
