The government is proposing a single immigration system that will apply to anyone who wants to come to Britain after Brexit. The system will build on current immigration rules for third-country nationals, with many changes. The government believes that the immigration system should focus on skills and talent. If there is a perception that little has changed, it is because both sides agreed that many things would remain the same for 11 months to give the heads of state and government time to agree on a life for post-Brexit life. But the deal solves a major problem between Britain and the EU, with Brussels warning that no broader trade deal would be possible if London got away with its threat to terminate the withdrawal treaty. The withdrawal agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom does not contain transitional provisions on the right of Britons to vote in the Member States. On the contrary, the agreement stipulates that the clauses of the Treaty on the functioning of the European Union which provide for the right to vote and the right to vote of European citizens in European and local elections and the acts adopted on the basis of these provisions are not applicable to the United Kingdom during the transitional period provided for by the agreement. Brexit came when the UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020. 6.General implementation of the EEA-EFTA and related Swiss agreements The reception of the agreement in the House of Commons ranged from cold to hostile and the vote was delayed by more than a month. Prime Minister May has received a motion of no confidence within her own party, but the EU has refused to accept further changes. On 6 September 2020, the Financial Times reported that the UK government was considering drafting new laws to circumvent the protocol of the Northern Ireland Withdrawal Agreement.  The new law would give ministers the power to determine which state aid should be notified to the EU and to define which products at risk of being transferred from Northern Ireland to Ireland (the withdrawal agreement stipulates that in the absence of a reciprocal agreement, all products are considered vulnerable).
 The government defended this approach and stated that the legislation was in accordance with protocol and that it had only “clarified” the volumity in the protocol.  Ursula von der Leyen warned Johnson not to violate international law and said that the implementation of the withdrawal agreement by Britain was a “precondition for any future partnership”.  On 8 September, the Minister of Foreign Affairs for Northern Ireland, Brandon Lewis, told the British Parliament that the government`s internal market bill would “violate international law”.”  However, just a few weeks before the implementation of the new agreements, companies were eager to see the practical consequences of the new agreement. Many businesses in Northern Ireland fear they will be hardest hit by the Brexit disruption and appealed after 1 January. Free movement will continue until the end of the transition period (or transposition period) and EU and UK nationals will be able to move to the UK or Member States, as currently permitted by EU legislation. EU citizens living in their host country before the end of the transition have a permanent right of residence under the withdrawal agreement due to certain requirements. Under the agreement, the UK and EU-27 have discretion under which EU or UK nationals must apply for new resident status. The protocol also contains a unilateral exit mechanism for Northern Ireland: the Northern Ireland Assembly will vote every four years on whether these rules, which require a simple majority, should be maintained.
