Ankara Agreement Employee
Since the ECAA is an agreement between the Member States of the European Union and Turkey, this road will be closed to new applicants when the transition period ends on 31 December 2020 and the UK finally leaves the EU. At the end of the Brexit transition period, on 31 December 2020, at 11pm, new applications from Turkish nationals working in other job categories in the UK will no longer be able to use the Turkish work visa route. After that date, the rights of those in this category will be respected until December 31, 2020. Subsequently, the UK will no longer participate in the EU-Turkey agreement (the CEAA agreement or “Ankara”) and the Turkish workers` provisions will no longer be part of UK law. Therefore, when a Turkish worker completes the first year of employment after 31 December 2020, he cannot apply to move to the category since there is virtually no longer exist for new candidates. The European Union Withdrawal Act (Withdrawal Act 2018) still repeals the European Communities Act 1972 on the day of withdrawal, but its effect was spared by the withdrawal agreement for a transition/implementation period until 31 December 2020. Yes, yes. It does not fall within the exclusions under Article 127 of the Withdrawal Agreement, which states that “unless otherwise stipulated in this agreement, EU law applies to the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom during the transition period.” The term `EU law` is defined in Article 2 of the Withdrawal Agreement, which includes `international agreements to which the Union is a party and the international conventions of Member States acting on behalf of the Union`. The ECAA is such an international agreement. Requests for a change of route for Turkish workers must be submitted by 31 December 2020.
However, Section 2 of the 2019 Regulations on Free Exploitation and Free Provision of Services (EU Withdrawal Regulations) limits this situation in order to avoid preferential treatment of Turkish nationals that could undermine the UK`s WTO obligations (in accordance with the explanatory statement of these regulations). Rights, powers, obligations, obligations, restrictions, remedies and procedures arising directly or indirectly from Article 13 (aimed at lifting restrictions on freedom of establishment) and Article 14 (removal of restrictions on the free movement of services) of the Ankara Agreement and Article 41 of the Protocol, which is additional to this agreement, are no longer recognized and accessible (and applied accordingly). Turkish businessmen can pass a visa under the Ankara Agreement from any other immigration category and must comply with the 1973 trade requirements, which are much less stringent than the requirements of BRITISH immigration law for other entrepreneurs from third countries. After the granting of a first 12-month leave in this category, additional leave may be requested for the continuation of the transaction and is generally granted for a period of three years or for a shorter period of 12 months if there is any doubt as to the continued viability of the business. Some eligibility requirements will be specific to the new ILR routes for people under the ECAA. With the European Union replacing the EEC with the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the Ankara Agreement now governs relations between Turkey and the EU.   Turkey first applied for membership of the European Economic Community (EEC) in July 1959, with the EEC being founded in 1958. The EEC responded by proposing the establishment of an association as an interim measure leading to full membership. This led to negotiations that culminated in the Ankara Agreement on 12 September 1963.  Unfortunately, at this stage, I have not seen any further updates on the trade negotiations between the UNITED Kingdom and Turkey to secure the future of Turkish businessmen and workers in the UK.
