Mobility - July 2020 - 23

However, the unemployment percentage will change
as a result of the impact of restrictions to contain the
coronavirus. The number of EU nationals working
physically, and to an extent virtually, in the U.K. will
also change, although only temporarily as European
governments ease travel restrictions.
Since the Brexit referendum vote on 23 June 2016,
the number of EU nationals relocating to the U.K.
for employment has significantly decreased. For the
year ending June 2016 to the latest ONS quarterly
report, issued on 27 February, the number of EU
immigrants has dropped from a high of 190,000 to
79,000, its lowest level since 2004. The number of
non-EU nationals moving to the U.K. with a job has
increased, however, to 78,000, which has been the
trend since 2013.
As mentioned, the transition period for when the
U.K. will no longer follow EU rules and regulations is
scheduled to end on 31 December 2020. The transition
end date can be delayed once for up to two years. But
both sides must agree on the postponement, which
technically needed to occur by 1 July. Even with the
pause in negotiations, the U.K. has stated it will not
request or agree to a delay.

The new system will
apply equally to EU
nationals looking
to immigrate to the
U.K. for work and to
non-EU nationals.
The U.K. Home Office will be providing further guidance on its new points-based immigration system. M
