The Prime Minister has proposed that there should be an Implementation Period immediately after the UK leaves the EU, while we and the EU put in place the necessary preparations for the future arrangements, and to ensure that people and businesses only have to plan for one set of changes. During this time, EU citizens will continue to be able to come and live and work in the UK, but there will be a registration system

There is a wide range of options as to how EU migration might work after that Period. We are considering these options very carefully and we will take decisions based on evidence and the views of stakeholders.

We will be setting out initial proposals for our future immigration arrangements shortly.
