The UK no longer being in the European Union raises plenty of questions for those British people planning on moving to France after Brexit. They now have the same rules as those of other ‘third country nations’, like Americans. Or do they? The UK is, after all, just 22 miles away and connected by a tunnel, not 3,000 miles!
After Brexit, there will be some changes for British people moving to France. Buying property will be unaffected, but if you’re moving permanently, some new rules may apply. Here are your need-to-knows.
Theresa May has put off the vote on Brexit until March 12th, and so the uncertainty continues. Will there be a transition period, or will people moving here afterwards need to follow the visa route? And what about us already here – what is Brexit’s effect on expats in France? How can you prepare and get more certainty around your status?
It is still early days and nothing is going to change for at least two years. Indeed, things may not change at all but that would be looking too far into the future – what we’re all wondering is how this will impact those living in France.
