Will the ability to travel between Great Britain and European countries change for EU and UK citizens?
EU citizens and UK nationals can continue working, studying or living under the same conditions as per the Union law. Reports indicate the UK and EU citizens are free to move from one place to another until 29th March 2019 which is the date that the UK will officially exit the EU. Following the decision to leave, the UK was given 2 transition years and at the end of this time, the new rules will take effect. People who will arrive before Brexit day will have the right to stay and those people who have not acquired permanent residence will be protected and they will be given a chance to acquire the residency.
The residents also have reunification rights that allow their family members who are not with them to join them in the future. The EU citizens that reside in the UK will have their rights under the UK las and these laws will be enforced by the British courts. However, the European Court of Justice will also have jurisdiction over the rights of the EU citizens for eight years since the withdrawal date. All the EU citizens that live in the EU will have access to various services such as education, health care, social security, and employment. However, these citizens can lose their residency if they stay out of the country for more than five years. The ‘settled status’ process will be used to give the EU citizens residency rights in the UK.
