Fragomen and The Visa Team Webinar: Oil and gas, off shore working and a new UK immigration system

The UK’s involvement in European free movement will have ended on 1 January 2021, with a new immigration system introduced for everyone in the world, Ireland aside. That new system will be faster than our current Points Based System but no less complicated and will introduce new restrictions and friction for employers of European nationals.

On 8 December Fragomen will partner with The Visa Team to hold a webinar on the implications of the new system for the oil and gas sector. We will be thinking about how these new policies relate to three main groups of workers – Europeans in the UK before free movement ends, people from around the world who will move to the UK and UK waters from 1 January 2021 and the situation for workers outside of territorial waters. This won’t be a legal lecture, we want to help you understand what the new Rules mean for you in practice.
