As we approach the end of 2020, transatlantic global mobility policy and practice is at an unprecedented juncture. Three exceptional factors meet at once: the global pandemic, the United Kingdom’s departure from the EU single market and the forthcoming change of administration in the United States of America.
These factors combine to create a minefield of challenges and opportunities for businesses as they plan mobility policy for 2021. Immediate practical issues include travel bans, travel corridors and quarantine rules. Longer term opportunities include a new legal framework for immigration into the UK and the potential for a significant change in approach to US immigration policy. Central to this mix is the prospect of a UK-US Free Trade Agreement and the outcome of UK-EU negotiations.
BAB presents a timely panel with updates from top UK and US government representatives, along with perspectives from corporate global mobility leads and legal counsel.
