How to prepare for Brexit?

Since January 1, 2021, the United Kingdom has been a third country to the European Union. EU law has ceased to apply in the UK.

A Trade and Cooperation Agreement was signed with the United Kingdom on December 30, 2020. Since January 1, 2021, this agreement has determined the rules applicable to relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union in a number of areas. The Withdrawal Agreement, which entered into force on February 1, 2020, remains applicable for the areas it covers.

Although an agreement has been signed, Brexit has brought about significant changes to which we must adapt.

Thus, the rules of free movement no longer apply to and from the United Kingdom.

If you are British residing, working or studying in France, if you wish to travel or work in France, this site helps you adapt to these changes.

You are required to hold a residence permit marked “Withdrawal Agreement” from January 1, 2022.

The website for submitting residence applications is closed from October 4, 2021. You are required to hold a residence permit from January 1, 2022. Until this date, all the rights acquired as that European citizens are maintained.

This section of the site links to pages dedicated to each of the issues you may face, depending on your personal situation. Detailed information can also be consulted on the websites of the various ministries concerned. If you cannot find the relevant information for your situation, a dedicated Brexit contact in each ministry is available to you on each subject.
