Tell us: are you trying to move country between the EU and the UK before the Brexit deadline?

We’d like to hear from EU citizens planning to relocate to the United Kingdom and from UK citizens planning to move to the EU before freedom of movement ends on 31 December 2020

The Brexit transition period will end on 31 December, and with it the free movement of workers between the UK and other EU member states.

On 11 November, The Immigration Act received Royal Assent and was signed into law, marking a new era for people living in Europe and wanting to move freely between the continent and Britain. After 11pm on 31 December 2020, freedom of movement will be replaced with a points-based immigration system, and people wanting to come into the UK to work will need to apply for permission in advance.

Visas will be awarded to people who gain enough points for a job offer at the appropriate skill level, if they speak English, and if they meet a salary threshold.

We’d like to hear from EU citizens who plan to relocate to the UK before the end of year deadline in order to reserve the right to settle in the country, and from UK citizens trying to settle in the EU while they can.
