“Based on what has been said during the referendum campaign and given the importance of labour from the EU for the UK economy, it can be expected that the lives of those Lithuanian nationals who are living in the UK already won’t change. New measures will most probably be aimed at newcomers. However, much would depend on the UK’s stance in negotiations with the EU and on the progress of those the negotiations,” she said in an interview with Verslo Žinios.

The conditions awarded to students who had already signed contracts with UK’s universities should also be unaffected, she said, though she said that the cost of studies for non-EU students may increase if a respective decision were made after the withdrawal treaty were to come into effect.

On 23 June, the UK will vote in a referendum on whether the UK should remain in the EU. Recent polls have shown the Out camp in the lead.
