Business activity in the UK

Freedom of movement between the EU and UK has ended. EU, EEA and Swiss citizens entering the UK for work purposes may need to apply for a visa through the UKs points-based immigration system. This depends on the nature of their visit.

For visits under 6 months, EU, EEA and Swiss citizens can enter the UK without applying for a visa. They may participate in business-related activities, such as meetings, events and conferences.

If you require EU, EEA or Swiss citizens to go to the UK to work for longer than 6 months, you will need to check the UKs immigration laws.

If you employ or intend to employ an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen to commute into the UK, you will need to consult guidance for frontier workers.

If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss Citizen working in the UK, you may need to consult guidance on how to pay social security contributions.

The new rules do not apply to Irish citizens because of the Common Travel Area arrangement.
