Government launches new webpage aimed at British expats, following referendum result

3

BRITISH nationals looking for advice on travelling and living in Europe, following the result of the EU referendum, can now visit a new webpage on the UK government website at www.gov.uk.

The webpage explains that negotiations for the United Kingdom to leave the EU may take up to two years or more. The government will negotiate new arrangements with the EU including on issues affecting British expatriates and travellers. The government also wants the legal rights of British nationals living in European countries, as well as EU nationals in the UK, to be properly protected.

Until then there will be no immediate changes. During the period of the negotiations, the UK remains a full member of the EU, entitled to all the benefits and obligations of membership.

The webpage includes information on passports, pensions, healthcare, and also has a link to some general information on applying for dual citizenship.

  1. The Referendum was based on a pack of lies – the very kindest you could say is lots of dishonesty. It should be rescinded and then the real information given for a new one. For example, It was never mentioned that £80 billion came from the EU to fund research by our British scientists. There are lots of examples like this. It should not have been about lies on straight Bananas and such.

  2. I am stunned that such an obvious ‘con’ is still being allowed to stand. It’s a result that has been forced on the people by an incomopetant Government .most of whom then RESIGNED. What does this tell you? That we are behaving like a banana republic ,rather than a civilised nation. However they are safe in the knowledge that today people are too glued to their Pokemon 2 or their gaming ‘dummies’ to make a stance..
