EU citizens in the UK and future status

See below a message from the Cabinet Office regarding EU citizens living and working in the UK.

The UK Government’s first priority in negotiations with the EU is to secure the status of EU citizens living in the UK, and UK nationals living in the EU. No EU citizen currently in the UK lawfully will have to leave at the point that we leave the EU.

If you are an EU citizen living in the UK, there is no need to do anything now, including applying for a permanent residence document. There will be no change to the status of EU citizens living in the UK while the UK remains in the EU.

If you would like to find out the latest information you can sign up for email updates.

You can also find more information from the Home Office here.

Once an agreement has been reached with the EU on citizens rights, we will work closely with the Home Office to make sure that people know what has been agreed, and what they need to do next. We will be creating content which we will share with you to use on your channels and share with your partners, stakeholders and audiences where relevant. In the meantime, the more people who sign up to the email updates the better, so please do help get the message out, if you are able
