After a lengthy journey through parliament, the Immigration Act 2020 was signed into law on 11 November. The act makes a number of significant changes to the UK’s immigration system, particularly with regard to EU citizens. The new rules will apply from 1 January 2021. The act has made few headlines since its adoption but any civil society organisations who employ and/or work with EU citizens should familiarise themselves with the new rules. These rules will apply regardless of whatever trade deal may or may not be negotiated between the UK and the EU before the end of the year.
