Changes are coming on 1 January!
On 30 December 2020, the EU and UK signed a trade and cooperation agreement which will determine the rules that apply from 1 January 2021 to relations between the EU and the UK in a number of areas.
Since 1 January 2021, although an agreement has been reached, major changes must be taken into consideration.
The withdrawal agreement, which entered into force on 1 February 2020, includes specific provisions for the right of residence and the maintenance of working conditions for British citizens settled in France before 31 December 2020. You will have until 30 June 2021 to apply for resident status online. The Trade and Cooperation Agreement does not modify these provisions.
If you wish to settle in France in 2021, you will not be covered by the provisions of the withdrawal agreement and the steps to be taken will be different, but the Trade and Cooperation Agreement provides for social security coordination in certain areas.
You are concerned 1) if you are a British citizen who works in France or who wants to work in France; 2) if you wish to obtain a work permit to work in France; 3) if you are a self-employed worker who is a British citizen; or 4) If you are a British citizen posted to France.
