100 days since Brexit:
Do you know the UK's
new immigration rules?
12 April 2021
On 31 December 2020, the Brexit transition period came to an end and the UK fully implemented its new points-based immigration system.
The new rules treat EU and non-EU citizens equally, and any employer looking to hire workers from outside the resident labour market must hold approval from the Home Office by applying for a Sponsor Licence.
Now over 100 days have passed since the end of the transition period, how much do you know about the UK’s new immigration rules?
To help employers and applicants understand and adjust to the new rules, Smith Stone Walters has created a comprehensive guide to the points-based immigration system.
In our free guide, we break down the following areas:
- The Sponsor Licence process – Understand the eligibility requirements, application process and compliance duties involved in becoming a Home Office approved sponsor.
