1. Any person who is currently legally living, working or studying in the UK will still have the legal right to continue to live, work or study in the UK when the UK leaves the European Union.
2. Any person who is illegally living, working or studying in the UK will be deported according to law as is the case in both other EU member states and other countries in the world.
3. After we leave the EU it is UKIP's policy to introduce a fair, ethical and transparent Australian-like points based system for those who want to live, work or study in UK. UKIP will not to discriminate against anybody because of their race, creed or gender under this points based approach. Anybody wishing to come to live, work and study in the UK will have the right and duty to apply for a UK visa and work permit.
4. References to ‘transitional period’ negotiations refer to a two year period that the UK would have to go through to exit the EU under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. During this period EU citizens living in the UK and UK citizens living in the EU will not have their rights affected. UKIP’s position during these negotiations is that the status quo should remain for these people living and working in both the EU and the UK. However, we cannot predetermine the negotiating position of the European Union.
