Treatment of EU Nationals post-Brexit
Last updated: 17/11/2020
Any EU National arriving in the UK before 01/01/2021 is eligible for applying under the EU Settlement scheme for pre-settled status before 31/06/2021 and will be fine to continue working in the UK.
Any EU National arriving in the UK after 01/01/2021 will have a grace period in which an employer is not obliged to request confirmation of their EU settled status until 01/07/2021. However, after 31/06/2021 any EU National who cannot prove they have a status under the EU Settlement Scheme will be required to be sponsored under the Points based system.
Therefore, any EU national arriving in the UK after 01/01/2021 should really only enter the UK under the Points Based System, i.e. Sponsored.
