Brexit

(update 26/03/2019)

  • The United Kingdom announced on 29 March 2017 its decision to withdraw from the European Union. As a result, it will no longer be a member of the European Union.

    The negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union on the conditions of the withdrawal are still ongoing. The withdrawal agreement has been negotiated but not yet ratified.

    The following European Council decision taken in agreement with the United Kingdom has been adopted on 22 March 2019:

    • in the event that the Withdrawal Agreement is approved by the House of Commons by 29 March 2019 at the latest, the period provided for in Article 50(3) TEU is extended until 22 May 2019;
    • in the event that the Withdrawal Agreement is not approved by the House of Commons by 29 March 2019 at the latest, the period provided for in Article 50(3) TEU is extended until 12 April 2019. In that event, the United Kingdom will indicate a way forward before 12 April 2019, for consideration by the European Council.

     

    The following information is therefore provisional and may be modified as a result of the ongoing negotiations. For this reason, the Immigration Office is not yet able to answer questions about individual files.
