Tier 2 visas will be applicable to EU citizens after the exit of the UK from the EU. On the other hand, Edinburgh University experts have said that minor changes to the Tier 2 visas will facilitate skilled workers to be employed in diverse jobs in Scotland.
The plan has been regarded as an option that is politically viable and would help to retain the inflow of skilled EU workers. Major sectors such as Tourism, Hospitality and Food processing would be benefited by the planned changes to the Tier 2 visas.
The crucial report has been welcomed by the government of Scotland, as quoted by the Workpermit. It had criticized the broad approach of the UK towards immigration as harmful to the economy of Scotland.

The report of the experts of the Edinburgh University came close on the heels of UK humiliation accusation on David Davis, the Brexit secretary. This was just the first day of UK-EU Brexit negotiations.

The exit negotiations with EU will initially exclusively focus on exit bill for the UK, rights of EU nationals, and border issue with Ireland.
