Immigration Review

Welcome to our series of podcasts based on the post-Brexit immigration system, brought to you by the business immigration team at our sister company, Capital Law, in partnership with Five Paper Chambers’ Business Immigration barrister, Satinder Gill.

In this series a member of the Capital Law team will discuss with Satinder the new points-based system, and some of the frequently asked business immigration questions.


Episode 3 — EU Settlement Scheme

In this episode we provide an overview of the EU settlement scheme. We cover the application process, the differences between settled and pre-settled status, and timescales applicants should be aware of in terms of time spent out of the UK.

On 12 May (9-10 am), we’re hosting a webinar to discuss the EU Settlement Scheme in more detail and what you, as a business, can be doing to prepare for 1 July 2021. To join us, all you need to do is register here.


Episode 2 — Differences in the old and new immigration systems

In our last podcast, we talked about how businesses could recruit workers who are not settled in the UK by applying for a sponsor license. In this episode we look at the differences in the old and new systems.


Episode 1 — Applying to be a sponsor

In this episode Alex Christen (Capital Law) and Satinder Gill (Five Paper) look at what options are available to employers hoping to recruit workers who are non-British nationals, to work in the UK.
