How will BREXIT affect you?

There are currently around 3.3 million EU citizens living in the UK. Many are very worried about their future after the recent referendum.

At present the status of EU nationals has not changed since the referendum. EU nationals are free to come and go from and to the UK as they please. There are no changes to your rights to live and work in the UK. The UK remains part of the EU until Article 50 has been triggered and even then negotiations with other EU members are expected to take at least 2 years.

The new Prime Minister has recently stated that she would like most EU citizens to be able to stay in the UK after the UK leaves the EU, but the situation in two years’ time is not clear .

Those who have acquired permanent residency and have a document to prove this, will have a right to stay in the UK for an unlimited period unless they leave the UK for a period of two years or more. For those who do not have evidence of permanent residence the picture is not so clear.

To get a card proving your permanent residency in the UK you will need to fill in a form of more than 80 pages accurately. More importantly you will need to supply sufficient evidence to cover each year that you have been in the UK.
