Brexit: Interim Cross-Border Controls Implemented for 21 Months in UK

By in

Last week, draft legislation was released by the UK cabinet regarding the UK’s exit from the European Union next year. Which provides that EU law on cross-border recognition, and the enforcement of court rulings and confiscation orders will continue to apply to any legal matters resolved or issued during the 21-month changeover.

For the interim period, 3 million EU nationals currently living in the UK will have the right to stay permanently and continue their activities and will be able to be joined by family members/ dependents in future. The EC has asked the European Council of Ministers to approve the agreement, which must then be passed through the Houses Parliament.
