Brexit Withdrawal Agreement Immigration

For more information on the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement, see ec.europa.eu/info/european-union-and-united-kingdom-forging-new-partnership/eu-uk-withdrawal-agreement_en. In the case of other family relationships and unwarried partners, immigration a posteriori may be possible, either under the Withdrawal Agreement or according to the general rules on the subsequent immigration of dependants provided for in the Residence Act. In this regard, there are certain rules and conditions that must be met. Please contact your foreigners department for more details. * Please note that KPMG LLP (U.S.) does not provide immigration services. KPMG Law LLP in Canada can, however, assist clients in U.S. immigration matters. Those who are protected by the Withdrawal Agreement and who have not yet acquired permanent residence rights – if they have not lived in the host State for at least five years – are fully protected by the Withdrawal Agreement and can continue to reside in the host State and obtain permanent residence rights in the host State after the withdrawal of the United Kingdom. 2 For Brexit and Withdrawal and Immigration Agreement coverage for UK nationals, see our other Brexit reports in GMS Flash Alert at home.kpmg/xx/en/home/insights/2015/09/flash-alert-brexit.html. These are reflected in clause 11 of the Act, which provides for a power to adopt rules (including Henry VIII`s powers) that confer a right of appeal against certain “immigration decisions of citizens` rights”.
