James Barbour, Director, Technical Policy, highlights new advice from the UK Government for British nationals travelling and living in the EU.

The UK Government has published new guidance for British nationals travelling and living in the EU, following the result of the EU referendum.

It is intended that this page will be updated on a regular basis and members living in other parts of the EU may find it useful to bookmark.

As the page outlines, in the interim period there will be no immediate changes and during the period of the negotiations the UK remains a full member, entitled to all the benefits and obligations of membership of the EU. 

Specifically, this means:

  • British nationals can continue to travel freely within the EU using a UK passport.
  • There will continue to be no visa requirements for British nationals entering another EU country.
  • British nationals can continue to access healthcare during temporary visits to EU countries using the European Health Insurance Card.
  • British nationals retain their legal status as EU citizens and can continue to work and live in EU countries.
  • British nationals can continue to receive healthcare in EU countries.
  • British nationals can continue to retire and collect their pensions in EU countries.
