In this series of articles Consultant Immigration Solicitor Ami Dhanjee explains the various changes to the way EU Citizens are able to continue to reside and work in the UK post Brexit.
Ami simplifies what actions EEA nationals or their family members may find themselves in and what steps they must take to continue to stay in the UK during the different stages of Brexit.
The UK leaves the EU on 29 March 2019. Thereafter, there will be an implementation period from 30 March 2019 till 31 December 2020.
Please note that this information is correct on 4th June 2018 and is open to change after this date.
EU citizens and their families arriving during the implementation period will be able to stay on the same terms but will need to register if they choose to stay longer than 3 months.
Example Scenario: Arrival in the UK during the Implementation period
Anastazia is a Polish national who arrives in the UK during the implementation period. If she wishes to continue to stay in the UK beyond 3 months, she will have to register herself. She will be able to continue to stay in the UK after the end of the implementation period if she applies for a temporary residence status by 30 June 2021.
Family members who live with or are joining EU Citizens in the UK by 31 December 2020 will also be able to apply for settled status after 5 years residence in the UK
Close family members will be able to join EU citizens after exit but only where the relationship existed on 31 December 2020.
