The NFU has received correspondence from Immigration Minister Brandon Lewis outlining the Home Office’s approach to guaranteeing the rights of EU nationals currently resident and working in the UK.
There are three simple messages the Home Office is asking employers to share with their staff who are EU nationals:
- You will be able to stay if you are in the UK when the UK leaves the EU;
- Close family members will be able to join you; and
- It will be easy and inexpensive to apply for settled status and a streamlined process will open during the second half of 2018.
