The UK Government has extended the immigration right to remain of non-European Economic Area nationals who work in the offshore wind sector.
The decision by the Home Office would give certain non-EU workers an additional year to continue working on offshore wind farm projects.
While the fate of other EU and non-EU workers is yet to be determined, the Home Office has made special provision for those non-British workers joining vessels ‘engaged in the construction and maintenance of offshore wind projects in UK territorial waters’.
However, the statement released by the government made clear that the concession would be time-limited and that leave to enter would no longer be granted after 21 October 2018.
