Brexit: what will change for UK citizens after March 29, 2019

Published on 13 March 2019

At the extraordinary summit on November 25, 2018, the Draft agreement on the future relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom was approved by European leaders.

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.

For more information on the content of the draft agreement, please visit the dedicated section of the EU Council website.

If this agreement is not approved by UK Parliament before March 29th, 2019, the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a transition period, the so-called "no-deal" scenario (unless the Brexit is postponed, if approved by the European Union (end of June 2019 at the latest).

In the case of a “no-deal” scenario, an Order issued on 7 February will govern the entry, residence, work and social rights of UK nationals residing in France, subject to reciprocity by the UK authorities.
