Petition Relax immigration rules to enable the UK hospitality industry to recover

The UK hospitality industry needs to replace workers from the EU that left the UK post Brexit, in time for reopening in line with governments roadmap.

More details

The people gap of circa 3 – 600,000 EU workers that have left the UK will stall the ability of hospitality businesses to reopen fully.

The scale and scope of the problem will stifle UK economic recovery, and the wellbeing of people in the UK hoping for a staycation this summer.

The Government should ease immigration restrictions on EU nationals and other migrant workers with experience of working in the UK hospitality industry, at least temporarily, immediately. This could be achieved by creating a new hospitality visa, or exempting non-UK nationals with relevant experience from immigration requirements.
