EU settlement scheme

If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply now to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. Read our EU Settlement Scheme page for more details.

UK nationals living in the EU

There will be no change to your rights and status until after Brexit if you are a UK national living in the EU. You will still be able to work, collect your pension and get healthcare as you do now.

Your rights may change after Brexit. Visit the website to find out more.

Information for businesses

From now on, you will need to make customs declarations to move goods in and out of the EU. You'll need to get an EORI number, if you do not already have one. Visit the website to find out more.

You'll need to decide how you want to make customs declarations. You may need to get someone to deal with customs for you.
