The UK will leave the EU on 1 January 2021 ending free movement of EU nationals. British citizens’ rights to live and work in EU countries will also be restricted.
This session will give an overview of available immigration options for British nationals wishing to travel to and work in Belgium, Italy and Switzerland. We will discuss the process and eligibility criteria for work visas in these three countries, as well as permitted activities for business visitors. Join our panel: Naomi Hanrahan-Soar, Lewis Silkin; Sophie Maes, Claeys & Engels; Valeria Morosini, Toffoletto De Luca Tamajo e Soci; and Annette Zimmerli, Suter Howald Rechtsanwälte, as we provide practical tips to employers of British nationals travelling to the EU on what to expect after Brexit.
Brexit has substantial implications for immigration between the UK and the EEA/Switzerland (excluding Ireland). Businesses and individuals should ensure they have a plan in place for how to deal with the new immigration requirements that apply for EEA/Swiss (EEA) national workers and their family members from 11 pm on 31 December 2020, and for all other non-EEA national workers from 1 December 2020. Planning should also cover British nationals who are residing in the EEA, or who need to travel to the EEA from 11 pm on 31 December 2020.
