DKUK: Brexit and EEA residency rights – deal or no deal

12 March 2019
DKUK events

The UK government has now guaranteed that a settled status scheme will continue even in a ‘no-deal Brexit’ but there remains a lot of uncertainty and confusion around the residency of EEA nationals and their family members after Brexit.

In this breakfast briefing, immigration experts North Star Law will give a practical update on the latest position on securing residency rights before Brexit, and rights of those arriving for the first time after 29 March 2019. We will look at both ‘deal’ and ‘no-deal’ scenarios (unless that question has been resolved by that time).

Topics covered will include:

  • EEA nationals resident in the UK before Brexit: the settled status scheme, permanent residence and British citizenship; family members
  • EEA nationals arriving in the UK after Brexit
  • Employing EEA nationals on and after Brexit: illegal working checks and the future immigration system
  • Q&A
  • Programme
  • Speakers
