Brexit: 6 ways Britain’s vote to leave the EU affects us all

No immediate change in immigration status

Chief Political Commentator of the Independent newspaper has makes the following commentary: “The Prime Minister will have to address other immediate concerns. He is likely to reassure nationals of other EU countries living in the UK that their status is unchanged. That is what the Leave campaign has said, so, even after the Brexit negotiations are complete, those who are already in the UK would be allowed to stay”.

As Jonathan Portes, the former Treasury economist, wrote, “given we have no population register, and that EU nationals are not required to have visas, we won’t actually know who is here on 23 June”. Portes says the most likely arrangement is that suggested by Steven Woolf, UKIP’s migration spokesman, that anyone who’d registered for a National Insurance number before the referendum would be guaranteed residence rights.

For the two years of Brexit negotiations, free movement of EU workers would still apply, so people could still come from elsewhere in the EU, but their immigration status after Brexit would be uncertain.
