Following the UK’s departure from the European Union, EEA Nationals must follow specific procedures to live and work in the UK.
The EU Settlement Scheme is designed to allow EU, EEA, and Swiss citizens, as well as their family members, to continue living and working in the UK after Brexit. This scheme provides settled status or pre-settled status, depending on how long the individual has been living in the UK. Settled status allows the individual to stay in the UK indefinitely, while pre-settled status allows them to stay for up to five years before applying for settled status.
For EU citizens who work in the UK but live elsewhere, the Frontier Worker Permit is available. This permit allows individuals to continue working in the UK while living in another country. The permit is valid for five years and can be renewed if the individual meets the eligibility criteria.
