To work in the UK

Hi,

I am a non-EU Swiss resident (an Australian married to a Swiss) wish to work in the UK.


Questions:
a. must an applicant of the EU Settlement Scheme in the UK be a resident? Could a non-UK resident apply anyhow?
b. Could I then go to the UK on a tourist visa (valid 6 months) and apply for a job there, and then apply for the scheme?

Hope my questions make sense. I am doing the reverse. I wish to work in England. I have a Swiss C permit and an Australian passport.

Advice. Thanks heaps.

Re: To work in the UK

You'd do better to look at what the arrangements are for Aussies wanting to live/work in the UK. Unless your spouse is moving with you, it's not possible under the EU Settlement scheme.

"Your EU, EEA or Swiss family member will usually need to apply as well."

Atm you have to be sponsored by a UK employer to be able to work there as an Aussie citizen.

You are not an EU citizen, so you canít apply for the EU settlement scheme. Also the scheme is for EU/EEA citizens living in the UK prior to brexit, so thatís 10 days away!

Re: To work in the UK

Assuming the withdrawal deal is fully ratified in the next 10 days, then you would both have until the end of this year to move to the UK and apply for settled status.

Your husband would either have to go first, or you can go together. You need to apply for an EEA family permit before you travel/move https://www.gov.uk/family-permit/eea-family-permit
