Emma Hopkins: People who Wish to Work in the UK will Apply through a New System
The British ambassador specified that Bulgarians can travel to the Island for up to 6 months
The United Kingdom left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020. From 1 January 2021, a new migration policy will also be introduced after the free movement of persons is terminated. EU and non-EU nationals will be treated equally, it said.
The country intends to reduce overall migration levels and give top priority to those with the highest skills and greatest talents: scientists, engineers and other highly skilled workers.
Free movement will be replaced by a new point system for assessing migrants.
In this regard, Deputy Ambassador Lynn Charles of the British Embassy provided more information on the new immigration policy of the United Kingdom in a special video. In it, she explains who falls within the scope of the new immigration policy and which citizens are excluded.
Anyone arriving in the United Kingdom after 1 January 2021 to work or study will need to obtain a special permit based on the point system in question.
Bulgarians who are already living in the UK can apply for the Duty Scheme by 30 June 2021.
