BREXIT – Possible Outcomes for Citizens [Updated 15/02/2019]

On 15 January 2019, the United Kingdom parliament voted overwhelmingly (by 432 votes to 202) against the withdrawal deal negotiated between the government and the EU. On 16 January the UK prime minister survived a no confidence vote. A debate and vote on the government’s “plan B”, and on amendments to it, was held on 29 January 2019, with no more clarity as a result.

While the article 50 process means that, as things stand, the UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019, with or without a ratified deal, there are several ways that no-deal Brexit may be averted before then.

UNITED KINGDOM – Government Publishes Post-Brexit Immigration Proposals [UPDATED]

The UK Home Office has published its long-awaited policy paper on its proposed future skills-based immigration system, designed to replace freedom of movement for EU citizens after Brexit.

According to the proposal, EU (and EFTA) workers will be treated the same as non-European nationals under the existing Points-Based System, but with some amendments to the system following most of the recommendations of the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) earlier this year.

On 20 December 2018, the Home Office published factsheets and statements related to the Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill 2018, which will end the EU’s rules on free movement of persons into the UK and make EEA and Swiss nationals and their family members subject to UK immigration controls.
