asked questions


  • Can a British citizen remain a member of the French civil service if there is no withdrawal agreement ?
  • Yes. Article 17 of the Order of 7 January 2019 provides legal certainty for British citizens residing in France who are civil servants: "British citizens who, on the date of entry into force of the Order, are permanent or probationary civil servants shall retain that status, regardless of their position".


  • What will be the situation of British citizens who are members of the French civil service in the case that there is no withdrawal agreement ?
  • As part of preparations for a withdrawal without agreement, Article 17 of the Order of 7 January 2019 provides legal certainty for British citizens residing in France who are permanent or probationary civil servants working in any of the three civil service branches (central, local or hospital). This concerns British citizens who, on the date of entry into force of the Order and regardless of their position, are either permanent or probationary civil servants. To guarantee the same career development as that of civil servants who are citizens of an EU Member State, the British civil servants concerned shall be subject to the same conditions set out in the general staff régulations.
