EU nationals can enter the UK after the Brexit date, but for an initial 3 or 6-month period. If they intend to stay longer, they must obtain a 2-year residence permit. These permits will be under a new model that will be introduced during the implementation period, this will be subject to new requirements. An important consideration for job seekers is that once free movement ends, they can only stay in the UK for longer than 3 (or 6) months, if they are carrying out specific activities, which will no longer include job-seeking. Job seekers will no longer be able to remain in the UK, for more than the initial 3 or 6-month period, unless they fulfil a specific income threshold as a self-sufficient person. A job-seeker should consider entering the UK prior to the Brexit date, to allow themselves enough time to find a job, so that when they are obligated to obtain a residence permit, they can apply based on being a worker. Residence permits will not be issued to job seekers during the implementation phase.
