It has never been difficult for Nordic folk to work and settle in the UK.
If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen who started living in the UK before Jan 1st 2021, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK. This is easy and free and the UK Government information page guides applicants through the process. As of 1st February, 2020 more than 3 million applications had been received. You can apply up to 30th June 2021.
If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status. This status will allow you to stay in the UK and to continue to access public funds and services.
If you want to move to the UK you will need to apply for a UK work visa under the points-based system that the UK Government has implemented. You will need a job offer to apply but, at this early stage it looks like an easy process. From our personal experience, easier than it was before Sweden joined the EU!
Some of our clients will offer assistance with the process to successful applicants.
