BREXIT (Updated 2019-04-09 )


Following the entry into force of the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement, the status of UK nationals and their family members will remain unchanged and they will continue to enjoy free movement within the EU until the end of the transitional period (31 December 2020).

During the transitional period UK nationals have to apply for residence certificate only if current residence certificate expires.  The application should be examined no later than within 1 month as from the date of submission to the Migration Department. Please find more information here.

Ministry of the Interior will draft a concrete legislation to implement the Withdrawal Agreement and keep the UK nationals informed of any further developments on the envisaged procedures following the transitional period. We assure that those procedures and requirements will be smooth and clear.

Information update for the citizens of the United Kingdom and their family members on the right of residence under the Withdrawal Agreement:
