Advice for British nationals travelling and living in Europe.

Advice for British nationals travelling and living in Europe, following the result of the EU referendum.
The British people voted on 23 June 2016 to leave the European Union (EU). The government will negotiate new arrangements with the EU including on issues affecting British nationals living and travelling abroad.

The negotiations to leave the EU may take up to 2 years or more. The government has made clear that we want the legal rights of British nationals living in European countries, as well as EU nationals in the UK, to be properly protected.
In the interim there will be no immediate changes. During the period of the negotiations, the UK remains a full member, entitled to all the benefits and obligations of membership of the EU. This means:
Travelling within the EU:
passports and healthcare

  • British nationals can continue to travel freely within the EU using a  UK passport.
  • There will continue to be no visa requirements for British nationals entering another EU country.
  • British nationals can continue to access healthcare during temporary visits to EU countries using the European Health Insurance Card.

Living and working in the EU
property, pensions and healthcare

  • British nationals retain their legal status as EU citizens and can   continue to work and live in EU countries.
  • British nationals can continue to receive healthcare in EU countries.
  • British nationals can continue to retire and collect their pensions in EU countries.
