L’impact du Brexit sur les citoyens français ou européens en Grande-Bretagne
Projet de loi : nouvelles dispositions sur l’immigration au Royaume-Uni
UK’s Future Skills-Based Immigration System:
This Brexit Breakfast workshop focused on the migration system after 2020 and future rules governing the movement of people.
From March 29th 2019 until 2020, no changes are planned until after 2021. Most companies main concern revolve around movement of people which is a critical issue. Also, throughout 2019, the Home Office will be spending time consulting to get views on its proposals.
Key areas of interest around the Immigration System concern visitors, skilled workers and sponsorship, short-term temporary workers and students. Visitors will continue to be able to come to the UK for up to a six-month period without requiring a visa and EU citizens who are non-visa nationals will continue to use e-gates. The UK government is also opting for a more digital approach through the use of Electronic Travel Authorisation like in the United States.
With regards to the sponsorship of skilled workers and students, the Home Office will streamline the current sponsorship system by reducing interactions between employers and the Home Office in order to minimise burdens on business. There will be a new system for skilled workers with no cap on number and requirements to undertake a resident labour market test for highly skilled workers. There will also be a minimum salary threshold as well as a sponsorship requirement.
Nationals of low-risk countries will be able to come for a maximum of 12 months to work at any skill level and the UK will continue to keep its Youth Mobility Scheme (18-30 years of age) where students can work & study for up to two years.
