Information for students from Croatia

Croatia flag

When Croatia joined the EU in 2013, the UK and other member states were able to restrict the access that Croatian citizens had to their labour markets for a maximum of seven years. The UK is one of a few EU countries (Austria, Slovenia and the Netherlands) which applies such measures. The restrictions have meant that, unless an exemption applied, Croatians needed permission from the Home Office to work in the UK.

The registration requirements for Croatian workers were reviewed after five years and decision was made by UK government not to continue with the restrictions for the final two years of the deal.

Hence from 30 June 2018 Croatian citizen have the rights to work in Britain in line with other EU citizens.
