European Temporary Leave to Remain (Euro TLR)?
Britain’s current Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has vowed to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union on 31 January 2020, if re-elected on the 12 December 2019. The departure of the UK from the EU, under the current framework of the Brexit deal, will effectively end free movement with the EU meaning that EU nationals residing in the UK will need to seek leave to remain.
The European Temporary Leave to Remain (Euro TLR) aims to provide 36-month temporary immigration status. EU nationals who do not hold the Euro TLR will be required to leave the UK by 31 December 2020.
From 31 January 2020 to 31 December 2020, there will be a transition period during which EU citizens along with their family members may move to the UK to live, work, study and access public services and benefits as they currently do.
The Euro TLR aims to a secure transition to a new immigration system which will be implemented from January 2021 onwards. EU nationals wishing to remain in the UK beyond the 36 months provided will need to apply for immigration status under the new system. The route is not yet open.
