EU Settlement Scheme
The UK's Immigration Minister has made a statement in Parliament about the Statement of Intent on the UK's EU Settlement Scheme.
The Council of Ministers has agreed to protect the position of European Economic Area (EEA) nationals who currently live and work in the Isle of Man.
Settlement secured for EU nationals by the UK in their negotiations with the EU will apply to those resident in the IOM:
- providing certainty and a status to those nationals who wish to remain in the Isle of Man following the UK's exit from the EU
- create a unified position for EU nationals between the Isle of Man and UK and
- provide certainty to Isle of Man employers of the position of their EU national employees.
The IOM Government continues to recognise the important contribution made by EU nationals to Island life and gives assurances that an IOM EU Settlement Scheme will be closely aligned to that published by the UK.
The Isle of Man Immigration Service are regulators for immigration services in the Isle of Man. Accordingly, its officers are unable to give advice on immigration matters as this could result in a conflict of interest when considering an application which might be made.
The above notes are intended as a general guide only and should not be taken as a comprehensive extract of the Isle of Man Immigration rules or immigration advice. It is the responsibility of any person making an application for entry clearance or to vary their leave to satisfy themselves that they meet the requirements for the category to which they are applying before making such an application.
