Brexit: updated “no deal” guidance for EEA citizens

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.
