On 1 January 2021 free movement ended and the UK introduced a new points-based immigration system. The new system treats EU and non-EU citizens equally and has transformed the way all people come to the UK to work and study. Anyone coming to the UK to work or study, excluding Irish citizens, must apply for permission in advance.
