Brexit: Migration information for Europeans


George Pat...
Hi,

I am sure many of the readers are wondering how things will be in the UK with Brexit looming on the horizon. Very often, the visa and stay situation is a deciding factor to go for an MBA in the UK or not.
This is a post about Europeans that are thinking to move to the UK.

The first step is to visit this site from UK government: https://www.gov.uk/staying-uk-eu-citizen
There you take a small quiz to see if you need to apply for Settled or Pre-Settle status.

The short version is: Any European moving to UK before 31 December 2020 can apply for pre-settle status (in practice you need to move at least a month earlier to gain proof of residency - usually a bill). It is a typical application, and unless you have some criminal record or something, you will be granted 5-year stay as pre-settled. After the 5 years are up, you can pass the test and get the British citizenship thus staying indefinitely

Applications for the EU Settlement Scheme open at end of this month (march 2019)

More info can be found on https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families/applying-for-settled-status

Disclaimer: This should give you an idea of how things are right now with the EU Settlement Scheme but keep in mind: Brexit is a ... work in progress (a.k.a. a mess)... and anything can change at any time. Visit the links and confirm with your own eyes what is needed. The links are the official UK government site and only they know(?) the correct and updated things. Also, If there is no brexit deal, things may change
