‘Get Ready for Brexit’ Campaign Launches in Greece

The UK government recently launched a major information campaign urging UK nationals living in Greece and travelling to the EU to take steps and get ready for Brexit on October 31.

According to an announcement, the campaign is aiming to inform more than one million UK nationals living in the EU about specific actions they need to take to secure their rights and services in their host country, including information on residency, healthcare, driving licences and passports.

It will also aim to encourage people travelling to the EU to make all necessary preparations by checking passports, buying travel insurance and checking driving licenses and pet passports.

UK nationals living in Greece are advised to take action and prepare for Brexit by checking the Living in Greece Guide at and:

*   Apply for residency,
*   Register for healthcare,
*   Exchange their UK driving licence for a Greek one,
*   Check their passport is valid for travel.

The UK Government recently announced up to £3 million in grant funding for charities and other voluntary organizations who can inform UK nationals about the need to register or apply for residency and to support them as they complete their applications.

Moreover, the announcement said the government also allocated an extra £300,000 to British Embassies and Consulates across the EU to engage with ‘hard to reach’ UK nationals such as disabled people, those living in remote areas or people who might need extra help to complete any paperwork in preparation for Brexit.
