Brexit agreements are coming into a close, and things are getting closer to being finalized. The UK government has announced that they will protect the rights of EU citizens who are currently living and working in the UK.
So far, the UK has reached agreements with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, and a different agreement with Switzerland.
What does this mean for me?
If you are a citizen from Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland (or any other EU countries), then you will need to apply for a right to stay in the UK.
Once you have applied to stay, then you can continue living as you do now, and no need to change or move away.
What do I do now?
If you are planning to stay in the UK, visit this website: https://www.gov.uk/staying-uk-eu-citizen and follow the prompts.
Based on your answers, this site will then advise if you need to apply to stay, what you need to do and when you need to do it by.
If there are any issues regarding your right to live and work in the UK, and you aren’t entirely sure of what to do next, it might be best to seek advice from an immigration lawyer, as it is better to make sure that you have all the right information so that you can complete any necessary paperwork earlier than later.
