Emma Brooksbank, Partner and immigration specialist at Freeths Solicitors, returns to campus on Wednesday 6 February to update colleagues on Brexit and the EU Settlement Scheme.
In the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the government has outlined the arrangements for European Economic Area (EEA) and Swiss nationals arriving after 29 March 2019.
The Prime Minister has announced (21 January) that EU nationals applying for the EU Settlement Scheme will not have to pay a fee when the scheme is fully rolled out by 30 March.
The test phase opens to the public on 21 January. To support colleagues we’ve developed several resources and have appointment slots available to access the Home Office app on an Android smart phone.
The UK Government has now reached agreement on citizens' rights with Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein (EEA EFTA countries) and Norway.
The Home Office will launch another voluntary pilot scheme which will be open more widely for EU nationals wishing to apply early for their new immigration status.
