Following a referendum, residents of the UK voted to leave the EU in 2016. As a result, on 31 December 2020 the free movement of EU nationals in the UK, Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey ended, from this date all EU nationals required immigration permission to enter and remain in the Island. The Withdrawal Agreement ensured that EU nationals resident in Jersey prior to 2021 would have protected rights and be able to continue living and working in the Island.
The Jersey EU Settlement Scheme was set up to mirror the UK’s scheme and enable resident EU nationals to formalise their protected rights and receive the immigration permission they need to continue living and working in Jersey once the UK left the EU.
