As the UK came to the end of its Brexit “transition period” on 31 December 2020, freedom of movement – the EU legal principal of citizens being able to live, work, and travel freely between all member states –ceased for member state nationals wishing to work or conduct business in the UK and, likewise, for UK nationals travelling to mainland Europe for the same purposes. Nationals of the UK and the EU – and the companies that employ them – must prepare for this new landscape. But how?
Join UK and EU immigration experts from Chamber member Newland Chase (a CIBT company) for this deep dive into the actions businesses should be taking and looking ahead to how this impacts business travelers and employees moving between the EU and the UK. Following the presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have to the speakers.
Date: Wednesday 17th February, 11:00-12:00 UK time (12:00-13:00 Spanish time)REGISTER
