Home Secretary Sajid Javid on 28 January 2019 set out provisions for EU citizens coming to the UK after EU exit in the event of a NO DEAL AGREEMENT.
In the event of no deal, EU citizens will be able to enter the UK to visit, work or study after 29 March 2019. If EU citizen would like to stay in the UK for more than 3 months, they will be required to obtain European Temporary Leave to Remain.
In order to stay longer than 3 months EU citizens will need to apply for permission and receive European Temporary Leave to Remain, which is valid for a further 3 years.
Then if they wishing to stay for longer than 3 years will need to make a further application under the new skills-based future immigration system, which will begin from 2021.
Home Secretary Sajid Javid said:
“If we leave the EU without a deal we will continue to deliver on the referendum result and end free movement once and for all – giving us full control of our borders for the first time in decades…”
