Post-Brexit Immigration into the UK
The UK immigration system that will apply to both EU and non-EU nationals after the Brexit transition period ended on 31st December 2020 has changed.
From 1st January 2021, free movement ended and a points-based system is now in effect. This is part of a wider programme of change to transform the operation of the UK’s border and immigration system. The UK Government has advised that EU and non-EU citizens will be treated equally and will give top priority to those with the highest skills and the greatest talents: scientists, engineers, academics and other highly-skilled workers.
