Brexit: University issues latest guidance for EEA nationals

  • 07 March 2017

Cambridge University has issued new guidance setting out immigration documentation options for staff who are EEA nationals.

The paper notes that the current political situation is uncertain and subject to change, and notes that to date the government has not taken any formal position as to the future status of EEA nationals living and working/studying in the UK. However, at present, the government has confirmed the following:

“The UK remains a member of the EU ... until Article 50 negotiations have concluded.

When we do leave the EU, we fully expect that the legal status of EU nationals living in the UK, and that of UK nationals in EU member states, will be properly protected.

The government recognises and values the important contribution made by EU and other non-UK citizens who work, study and live in the UK.” 

This paper is designed to provide guidance: individuals should seek legal advice if unsure what their options are.
