EU/EEA or Swiss nationals planning to work at Cardiff University

Information for those considering coming to the UK to work at the University.

The guidance will be reviewed regularly and updated as appropriate. You are advised to check this page regularly for further updates.

There will be no change for EU/EEA and Swiss nationals living and working in the UK or taking up new jobs in the UK until after 31 December 2020.

EU/EEA and Swiss nationals arriving in the UK between 31 January 2020 and 31 December 2020 will be able to enter the UK as they do currently (i.e no visa is required) and are eligible to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme on the same basis as those who arrived in the UK before 31 January 2020.

A new immigration system will be introduced from 1 January 2021.

For further information, please see the UK Government webpages on applying for settled status.
