With the formal notification by Theresa May triggering Article 50, formally notifying the EU of the UK’s intention to withdraw from membership, it starts the two-year clock for departure, making 29 March 2019 the expected date that the UK will leave the EU (unless members unanimously agree to an extension).

With the EU leaders meeting on 29th April 2017 to finalize their position vis a vis Brexit, UK can expect to start negotiations on the economy and the important issue of rights of EU nationals already in the UK (and British citizens elsewhere in the EU) early on in the negotiation process – however no formal arrangements are yet in place.

At SmartMove2UK we will be closely monitoring developments on the immigration aspects of the Brexit negotiations and participating in a number of consultations on the potential changes to the UK immigration system for new entrants post-Brexit.
