Worker Registration Scheme
The Worker Registration Scheme, which allowed nationals of the 8 countries which joined the EU in 2004 to work in the UK, is no longer in place as of April 2011. Per EU rules of accession, the transitional arrangements under which the Worker Registration Scheme were based expired after 7 years.
Citizens of Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia can live and work in the UK under the same rules as other citizens of other EU member states.
