Brexit: what will change for UK citizens

 

The United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union is effective as of 1 February 2020. The Withdrawal Agreement, provides for a transition period until 31 December 2020.

The purpose of this agreement is to prepare the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union by setting up a transition period until December 31, 2020. During this period, which could be extended by one or two years, European Union regulations continue to apply in the United Kingdom. Any extension will be decided by a Joint Committee before  1 July 2020.

The aim of this transitional period is to organise the future relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom, which has yet to be negotiated, while preserving the rights of British and European citizens.
