No Deal Brexit & Polo

Government guidelines

The below letter was published by the Hurlingham Polo Association (HPA) yesterday, Thursday 3 October, regarding the implications of a No Deal Brexit upon British Polo:

“The HPA recently received the attached from the Home Office in the event of a ‘No Deal Brexit’.
As far as polo is concerned in the immediate future the most relevant statement at the moment is in para 3:
“The new points based system will not apply until January 2021. Between 31 October 2019 and 31 December 2020 (i.e. for next season) law abiding EU citizens and their family members will be able to move to the UK and live, study, work and access benefits as they do now.”
This link takes you to the new immigration system post 31 December 2020 in the event of a ‘No Deal Brexit’.
This second link takes you to guidance on the rules for movements of equines into the EU in the event of a ‘No Deal Brexit’.
The HPA is actively engaged with the Home Office and recently had a meeting in Sheffield with the Border Agency. We hope to be in a position to update members further shortly.
Yours sincerely,
David Woodd, Chief Executive”
