There are no transitional arrangements. Until 1 May 2004, nationals of the 10 accession countries seeking to come to the United Kingdom for the purpose of employment will continue to be subject to work permit requirements. After that date, they will be subject to the same rights and obligations that apply to any other national of a new member state.
