Brexit: 'Don't panic' about your right to work

News | Published:

PEOPLE – including EU immigrants – should not panic about their rights to travel, work or live in the Island or the UK following the Brexit vote, the Chief Minister has said.

Likewise the rights of EU citizens to live or work in the UK and its dependent territories such as Jersey could change as existing agreements will be rescinded after the two-year period.

Chief Minister Ian Gorst said, however, that any EU immigrants already living in Jersey would not lose their rights to be here and were 'welcome' to be in the Island.
