Brexit – End of free movementupdate

Following our update on this last week, the Home Office has recently changed its position on what will happen following its deadline of ending free movement on 31 October 2019 in the event of a no deal Brexit. Whilst the end to freedom of movement will still take place on 31 October, the Government has stated that EEA Nationals can still enter the UK freely post-Brexit and those wanting to remain beyond three months would have to apply for European Temporary Leave to Remain (the details of this have still to be confirmed by the Government). It remains the position that those already in the UK can still apply for settled or pre-settled status. However, given the current political climate, nothing is certain at this stage and it is likely that other changes will take place…watch this space.
