On 28 January 2019 the UK Government published guidance for EEA and Swiss citizens arriving in the UK after 29 March 2019 in the event of a “no deal” Brexit. 

Individuals will still be able to enter the UK to visit, work or study, but those who wish to remain for longer than 3 months will need to apply for European Temporary Leave to Remain which will be valid for 3 years only. After this period elapses, these citizens’ right to stay in the UK will be subject to the new immigration system planned to take effect on 1 January 2021.

We have updated our Brexit Legal Guide section on migration with the proposed regime.

The Government has also announced that it is scrapping the £65 fee for eligible EU citizens to apply for settled status.
