Promise of a temporary two-year extension for EU migrants to be scrapped


According to recent reports No 10 is preparing to shut the door on EU migrants two years earlier than expected – so by the end of this year.


This move puts the Government on a collision course with business groups such as the CBI who insist that firms will need “at least two years to adapt to any new immigration system”.


We would recommend that any clients who employ EU migrants currently, or plan to do so this calendar year, check that those staff have applied for and been granted the new “pre-settled” or “settled status”.


Unfortunately UKVI does not issue BRP cards to these people, but they can go to this link:  to verify this. We would recommend that employers ask for a screen-grab or scan of the verification to place on their HR file.
