Brexit: What happens to EU citizens living in the UK?
All you need to know about the UK leaving the EU
The UK and the EU have made an agreement which states that the 3.2 million EU citizens in the UK – as well as citizens of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland will be able to continue living and working in the UK as they have until now with their rights enshrined in UK law and enforced by British courts. UK citizens living and working in the EU will also retain their current rights.
The agreement provides a final date of Brexit day – 29th March 2019 – for those to be covered by the policy. Babies born after the final date to people who have qualified under these rules will be included in the agreement. According to the proposal, EU citizens legally residing in the UK and UK citizens in the EU will be able to stay for up to five years before losing the rights they will have as part of the proposed Brexit deal.
