BREXIT & advice for EU/EEA staff
27 April 2017
The University of Oxford Staff immigration Team (SIT) has received many enquiries from EU staff in recent months and understand that the triggering of Article 50 on 29 March may have added to their concerns.
SIT is happy to help with any enquiries, and support EU staff with advice on the requirements and application process for a document to show Permanent Residence, if they do wish to submit an application to demonstrate their rights as an EU citizen.
The University’s ‘Oxford and Brexit’ website (www.ox.ac.uk/news-and-events/oxford-and-brexit) provides news, information, and analysis; and our ‘Information for EU staff’ website (www.ox.ac.uk/staff/staff_communications/oxford-and-eu-information-staff) provides a video podcast of one of our information sessions for EU/EEA staff. You can also sign up for their mailing list here to receive updates and information on government announcements.
While some applications can be fairly simple, such as those based on five or more continuous years of employment, please contact SIT if you have any questions; especially if your cases relies on periods under different categories (as a worker, self-employed, a student, or self-sufficient) and any cases where an application has been refused.
