Brexit: immigration

What you need to know about immigration and Brexit

The effect of the UK’s decision to leave the EU has been felt around the world and whilst the UK officially left the European Union at 23.00 on the 31 January 2020, the country will be in a transition period for 11 months binding it to the EU’s rules. There is a lot of work for the Government to be doing during that time, including re-writing immigration legislation, and along with the impact of COVID-19 there continues to be lots of uncertainty for what the future holds for individuals and businesses.

Understanding those wide range of uncertainties in the international markets, we also perceive many short and longer-term opportunities to capitalise on the dramatic impact of Brexit. It is vital to understand the risks – but the prospects too and the window of opportunity available to people before 31 December 2020.

We have therefore gathered materials from teams around our international network, focusing on the immigration issues that individuals and businesses may be facing.

We will continue to update this page with further analysis as developments take place, so please check back regularly for new updates.
