Brexit negotiations can be described as complicated at best, and UK nationals in Slovakia have many questions regarding what their rights will be after the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. In order to address Brexit-related concerns, the British Embassy of Slovakia hosted an informational Brexit session for all UK nationals on April 9 at the Primate's Palace.Read also:Read more
“I want to give all of you a personal update on how Brexit will affect you,” said British Ambassador to Slovakia Andy Garth. The Foreigners' Police and the Interior Ministry representatives were also in attendance.
At a special gathering of the European Council in Brussels on April 10, British Prime Minister Theresa May was granted a much needed extension on Brexit proceedings. The UK will depart the EU no later than October 31, 2019 instead of the originally planned departure date of April 12. This extension is contingent on the UK’s participation in the European Parliamentary elections on May 23 - May 26. Otherwise, it will have to leave the EU by June 1.
Residency in Slovakia
Post-Brexit agreements with Slovakia are based on reciprocity. The current rights of UK nationals will be protected in Slovakia as long as Slovaks living in the UK are granted the same protection.
All UK nationals with permanent residence in Slovakia will maintain their status after the UK’s departure from the EU. However, they must apply for a new residence permit by December 31, 2020. It is recommended UK nationals do this sooner rather than later.
