March 6, 2019

During his commentary to Sozcu newspaper, Sir Dominick Chilcott, British Ambassador to the Republic of Turkey stated that ECAA applications will not be accepted following Brexit, while the extension applications will continue as it is. Kindly find the relevant link HERE

We share the statement of the ambassador below:

“There will be no change in terms of the status of the Turkish people who have already relocated to the UK. If they have already benefit from Ankara Agreement at the time when Brexit happens, there is nothing to worry about.

However when Britain leaves the EU, this means that we leave Ankara agreement too. This is due to the fact that ECAA is an agreement signed between EU and Turkey and we will be no longer the party to this agreement.

One of the most important issue of Brexit is to control over immigration so that we will introduce our new immigration system after Brexit. And these new rules are still being negotiated thus the details are still not clear.
