At the end of the transition period, freedom of movement between the UK and the EU will end.
How Did We Get Here?
On 23 June 2016, the UK held a referendum asking voters in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland if they wanted to remain a member of, or to leave, the EU. 51.89% of UK voters voted to leave the EU. The UK government triggered the Article 50 process to commence withdrawal negotiations with the EU, thereby establishing an exit date of 29 March 2019. However, with no majority for the exit deal agreed with the EU, the Article 50 period had to be extended several times and the exit date postponed.
