Lindsay: Hungarians can stay in UK

Hungarians working in Great Britain need not worry about Brexit, as they can remain there even after Brexit, but they will have to obtain a residence permit, UK ambassador Iain Lindsay told HírTV on Wednesday.

He said that when the free flow of labour between Britain and the EU ceases after 2020, then experience and capabilities will decide who will be admitted to the UK.

Great Britain will have a new immigration system at the end of 2020, but until then EU citizens “can come and go,” – they can live, work and study in the UK, the ambassador stressed.
