“We will design our immigration system to ensure that we are able to control the numbers of people who come here from the EU. In future, therefore, the Free Movement Directive will no longer apply and the migration of EU nationals will be subject to UK law”
Government Brexit White Paper

Brexit uncertainty affected everyone – from private individuals to large multi-national corporations. The final outcome has had a major impact on the way Britain is governed.

EU nationals and their family members are particularly concerned about long-term UK immigration arrangements, as freedom of movement rights have now fallen away. We advise on EU citizen’s rights, particularly under the EU Settlement Scheme and we help businesses develop an immigration strategy for the UK’s new place in the world.

The Government has developed and implemented a new framework for post-Brexit immigration control. This policy arc affects EU and non-EU citizens, individuals and businesses. Magrath Sheldrick is at the forefront of post-Brexit thinking – providing innovative and practical guidance and solutions to corporations and private clients.

Find out more about the UK Government approach to immigration reform in our Webinar with the Minister for Future Borders and Immigration.

The Skilled Worker route is at the core of the new framework for inbound migration.

Listen to Ben Sheldrick‘s explanation and analysis of the UK government’s plans for a post-Brexit immigration system in this  Webinar.

British citizens in Europe also face major major changes as we explain in this Webinar with European experts.

We also invited Home Office officials to explain their policy thinking in this online event.

Is it legal to use coronavirus passports in the UK?

The vaccination programme has been very successful, with over 30 million adults receiving their first inoculations and over 4 million, their second.
