Can I still live and work in the UK after Brexit?

If you are a Dutch national living in the UK, Brexit may have an impact on your right of residence. 

Keep your right of residence by working in the UK

After the UK leaves the EU there may be a transition period from then until 31 December 2020. During this period, EU rules and regulations will continue to apply to the UK. If you have lived in the UK for less than five years when the transition period ends, you could lose your right of residence if you stop working. This is already the case. So Brexit will not change the current situation.

Right of residence in the event of a 'no deal’ Brexit

In the event of a ‘no deal’ scenario, the UK is responsible for national legislation in this area. The UK has published a range of policy papers and ‘no deal’ notices covering such a scenario. The UK is responsible for implementing the arrangements set out in these documents. For more information, see the website of the UK’s Department for Exiting the European Union.
