Detail

On 18 October 2012 the government introduced the European Union (Croatian Accession) Bill to Parliament. The bill includes provisions for transitional access arrangements for Croatian nationals.

Croatia is expected to join the European Union (EU) on 1 July 2013. Transitional arrangements will be introduced to restrict Croatian nationals’ access to the UK labour market.

The Home Office has published a statement of intent setting out the transitional restrictions which it expects to apply to Croatian nationals working in the UK after 1 July 2013. The statement of intent and an impact assessment are available below.
