Immigration Rules Around Brexit

Posted On: 15/01/2019

We’re now in ‘countdown’ mode as we creep ever closer to Friday, 29 March; there’s no denying that the ticking of the clock is getting louder.  As ever, our aim is to support you, and although no-one yet has an exact picture of what life will be like for businesses after Brexit, we can help you prepare to make the transition as easy as possible.

Towards the end of 2018, the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, shared the contents of the Government’s white paper outlining the new post-Brexit immigration policy which marks the end of free movement once we leave the EU. 

Javid said about the plan: “It’s a system that welcomes talent from every corner of the globe and demonstrates the UK is open for business.  Fundamental to the design of this system has been a recognition that immigration has made huge contributions to our society, culture and economy - enriching communities, bringing new perspectives, stimulating growth and making us the outward-looking nation we are today”.

The policy in brief

The new skills-based immigration scheme for all nationalities is proposed to come into effect in December 2020 and will work for the whole of the UK – for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  There will be an Implementation Period planned to run until then during which current rules will continue to apply.  Let’s break the proposed scheme down into bite-sized chunks.

Skilled and non-skilled workers

Students

Agricultural businesses

EU citizens already working in the UK

What you can do now

Remember, the details within the new immigration scheme are proposals so remaining flexible is key.
