Speculation and debate on whether nationals of EU states will have the right to live and work in the UK after Brexit is played out daily in the media. It is naturally a question troubling many people, both in government and those affected by Brexit.
Theresa May still says that Article 50 will be triggered before the end of March. If that happens, the UK will be out of the EU by April 2019. It’s looking increasingly likely that it’s going to be a hard Brexit or even a chaotic Brexit. In those scenarios, sooner or later the UK will end free movement for EU citizens. French people who have made the UK their home want to know what to do.
Theresa May continue de dire que l'article 50 sera déclenché d’ici la fin du mois de mars. Si cela se produit, le Royaume-Uni sortira de l'UE avant avril 2019. Un Brexit dur ou même un Brexit chaotique semble de plus en plus probable. Dans ces cas de figure, tôt ou tard le Royaume-Uni mettra fin à la libre circulation pour les citoyens de l'UE. Les Français établis au Royaume-Uni doivent savoir quelles démarches entreprendre pour pouvoir rester en toute confiance.

In recent months the Home Office, in partnership with local authorities, has rolled out a number of new initiatives for those making British citizenship applications and for EEA nationals applying for documents certifying they have acquired Permanent Residence under EU law.

Set out in this blog is a brief overview of these new services and the benefits they provide.
