Withdrawal Agreement Brexit Citizens Rights


    If the application is successful, EU citizens will benefit from either a regulated status (with a permanent right of residence) or a pre-regulated status (stay of less than 5 years). The non-demand of the scheme could lead to estrangement. The withdrawal agreement will protect the residence, employment and social security rights of Finnish citizens residing in the UK and UK citizens residing in Finland if they are established in the UK or Finland before 1 January 2021. This document helps to explain the aspects of citizens` rights in the withdrawal agreement between the UK and the EU. (In this perspective, when we refer to the VA, we collectively hear the agreements and where we refer to the EU, not only the EU-27, but also Switzerland and the EEA-EFTA countries). It also protects family members who are granted rights under EU law (for example. B, current spouses and registered partners, parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren and a person in an existing permanent relationship) to join their family member in the future. The EU wants to continue to forge a close partnership with the UK. We believe that it is possible to reach a fruitful agreement on the basis of the political declaration.

    However, it is important that we prepare for all possible outcomes of the negotiations. This includes preparing not to reach an agreement. The entry of British citizens travelling to Finland after 31 December 2020 will be limited compared to the former status of EU citizens. Similarly, Finnish citizens entering the UK after 31 December 2020 will be subject to restrictions. The rules for citizens and businesses wishing to move, work or study in another country after the end of the transition period will depend to a large extent on the outcome of the ongoing negotiations on future relations between the European Union and the United Kingdom. If an agreement is not reached, the rules and rules must be applied to third countries outside the EU. The joint reports provide an overview of progress in implementing the new resident status and issuing residence documents attesting to this status for EU citizens in the UK and for UK nationals in EU Member States. Those covered by Part 2 of the Withdrawal Agreement have, on the whole, the same rights to work, education and access to public services and services as they did before the UK withdrew from the EU. According to current information, British and European citizens will not need a 90-day short-stay visa on the territory of the other country from 1 January 2021, for a maximum of 90 days. The section on citizens` rights in the VA is unchanged from the VA, which was previously negotiated by the government in May.
