By 30 June 2021, EU citizens staying in the UK will have to update their status to “settled.” There is little time left and those interested are still not familiar with regulations. The specialists of the Kancelaria Konieczny Wierzbicki in their e-book discuss in detail the changes worth knowing.
Brexit: border and customs checks are coming back
Brexit also affects the transport of goods. Northern Ireland has been given a special status. The 2019 Protocol specifies the Northern Irish border on the Irish Sea as the customs border. For British goods, it will be point of entrance to the EU customs area. Border checks will be reinstated and goods will be verified in view of permissibility of customs exemption, in accordance with the rules of origin.
Immigration to the EU
The requirements for obtaining a residence permit are agreed at the EU level, but individual Member States may regulate the number of employees they accept. Directives in terms of regular immigration will probably not change to any significant degree in the near future. Consequently, the relocation of employees from the UK to the EU will look exactly the same as in the case of citizens of other third countries. The individual Member States are responsible for the procedures in terms legalization of stay and employment.
In the case of a stay in excess over 90 days in a period of 180 days, British citizens will have to obtain the relevant visa (usually a D-type national visa) and then a residence and work permit in accordance with national procedures.
E-book: a reliable source of information
Cyprian Liske, who specializes in international affairs and immigration, and Łukasz Wieczorek, attorney-at-law, who manages the Law Firm’s TMT department, have produced a compendium of knowledge that is a response to the information chaos caused by the United Kingdom leaving the European Union.
This e-book on post-Brexit changes describes the consequences of UK’s decision to no longer be a part of the EU. The analysis covers e.g. the issue of what the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement means for enterprises. We recommend having a look at it.
