The immigration rules affecting citizens of the European Union (EU) who wish to live and work in the UK are subject to change when Britain leaves the EU. In the meantime, however, citizens of the EU or of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), who are living in the UK are automatically entitled to permanent residence after a period of five years as a ‘qualified person’. This simply means someone who is working or self-employed, looking for work, studying or is financially independent.
Once you have permanent residence, you can apply for British citizenship after a further period of one year.
Times may be changing, but the expert Immigration Solicitors at Stirling Ackroyd Legal will be able to guide you through the period of change, as and when this happens. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your situation with a member of the team.
