UK Government intends to introduce the new points based system from 01 January 2021. The decision is greatly appreciated by the UK labour market and welcomes hundreds of foreign nationals every year for employment. The country will likely have a well-defined
immigration law in place for migrant workers in the UK. The new system wills after Brexit will treat the EU and non-EU migrants equally. From January 1st, 2021 all EU migrants will also have to apply to get permission to work in the UK
under the New Points Based System. Irish citizens will continue to enjoy the free movement to work in the UK.
