British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is preparing to impose new restrictions on low-skilled immigrants who move to Britain after the end of the transition period from the European Union separation in December. By canceling the temporary extension of the current rules until 2023.

The Telegraph added that Home Secretary Priti Patel is expected to present proposals to the government this week as part of a future working paper on the UK immigration system.

According to the undisclosed guidance, the government has drawn up a small list of exemptions such as those with physical or mental disabilities or children whose parents have not applied for them, the sources said.

The government is making the biggest changes to British border controls in decades, ending the priority given to EU immigrants over immigrants from other countries. Most of the bloc’s citizens will need some form of prior government permission to stay in Britain.

Government data show that just over half of the 3.5 million EU citizens living in Britain have received the new legal status before the December 31, 2020, deadline.

Lawyers handling immigration cases say the Interior Ministry invited them a few months ago to see the government’s draft immigration guidelines, which included a section on what would happen to EU citizens who do not apply on time. The government did not say when the information would be released.

In Europe, between 3.9 and 4.8 million migrants without a valid residence permit lived in 2017. This estimate comes from the Washington Pew Institute in a recent study. It refers to figures from the 28 EU states and the four European EFTA states Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

As “unauthorized migrants”, the institute counts all people who live in their country of residence without having an appropriate permit. This includes asylum seekers who are still waiting for a decision on their application and therefore have only a temporary residence permit, as their future residence status is unclear. Likewise, the category of visitors whose visa has expired and children of unauthorized migrants, even if they have never migrated themselves, are born in Europe but have not obtained a nationality.

For 2014, the institute expects still from 3 to 3.7 million unauthorized migrants in Europe, for 2016, it estimates a number between 4.1 and 5.3 million. The increase in these numbers between 2014 and 2016 is mainly due to the refugee flow in 2015, when more than 1.3 million people sought asylum in the 28 EU and four European EFTA states. The figures show that since 2016, the number of unauthorized migrants in Europe has fallen again – though not very strongly.
