Living in the EU: prepare for Brexit

Last updated 8 August 2019
Updated the 'UK nationals in the EU after Brexit' section

UK nationals in the EU after Brexit

The UK will be leaving the EU on 31 October 2019.

The government takes citizens’ rights extremely seriously. The UK has committed that the rights of EU citizens living and working in the UK will be protected in any Brexit scenario.

Protecting the rights of UK nationals in the EU is an absolute priority for this government, but the UK cannot protect the rights of UK nationals unilaterally. The government welcomes those commitments already given by all Member States to protecting UK nationals if there is no deal. We continue to encourage Member States to provide the same reassurances to UK Nationals in the EU that we have provided to EU citizens in the UK. We are urging Member States to communicate their detailed plans to UK Nationals as soon as possible.

It remains the government’s preference to leave with a deal. If there is a deal, free movement rights will continue to apply to you as a UK national during the implementation period. This means that you will be able to live in an EU country, enjoying broadly the same rights to healthcare, benefits and pensions as at present.

Not sure this actually adds anything. "If there is a deal..." Beloved Boris seems determined to leave without a deal (and blame the EU), if there is a deal it reads to me as though rights to live in a EU country and enjoy the same rights as at present will only apply during the implementation period.

 I think Boris wants a deal but not the one on the table, if the EU wont renegotiate then we will leave without one, that's the way i see it

Bloody foreigners. Don't they realise Britain waives the rules and they ought to damn well accept our demands? (er, despite having said, "No more negotiations" well before Boris got his foot in the door at No. 10)

Just to have my little say! When we voted in the referendum, (which incidentally was the first choice on the way the EU was going, since 1974), there was never any mention of a deal. This was what the EU and May came up with, as a way of being half in and half out. The problem with this, is that we would still pay contributions to the EU, but have no voting rights. As someone once said 'no deal is better than a bad deal!'
