The United Kingdom has published a Statement of Changes to immigration rules, outlining clarifications and amendments to the EU Settlement Scheme and the Tier 2 route for skilled workers, among other programs.
Some of the key changes are as follows:
The full Statement of Changes is available here. An explanatory memorandum on the changes is available here.
Analysis & Comment: The clarification on the EU Settlement Scheme will provide some certainty for non-EU family members of U.K. nationals, especially given that the changes cover both the “deal” and “no deal” Brexit scenarios. The removal of Ph.D.-level jobs from the Tier 2 category and the expansion of the Shortage Occupation List could help some employers deal with labor shortages U.K. companies are currently experiencing. The change to English testing requirements for medical professionals will reduce administrative burdens for some foreign workers.
