Extension of employment restrictions for Bulgarian and Romanian nationals

10 January 2012

Controls to restrict how Bulgarian and Romanian nationals access the UK labour market will be extended until the end of 2013. This means Romanian and Bulgarian (EU2) nationals seeking to work in the UK will continue to require permission from the UK Border Agency before they can work in the UK.

The UK Border Agency explained the rational of continuing the imposition of control on the nationals of these two countries with the press release reported below:

'Maintaining these controls will make sure migration benefits the UK and does not adversely impact on our labour market. The government is radically reforming the immigration system, and has already announced an annual limit on work visas and tough new rules for students to ensure net migration is reduced from the hundreds of thousands to the tens of thousands.

'The Migration Advisory Committee has made a clear case for extending the existing restrictions on Bulgarians and Romanians. This government has also made clear that we will always introduce transitional controls on all new EU member states as a matter of course.'
