UK nationals living in the EU
Information on the rights and status of UK nationals living in the European Union, European Economic Area (EEA) and European Free Trade Area (EFTA), and Switzerland is available on the GOV.UK website.
EU nationals living in the UK
The UK government has reached an agreement with the EU that will protect the rights of EU citizens and their family members living in the UK. It has also reached an agreement with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, and a separate agreement with Switzerland.
These agreements mean that most citizens from the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland will need to apply to stay in the UK. They can then continue living their lives here as they do now.
To check whether this applies to you, use GOV.UK's tool for EU citizens who wish to live in the UK after Brexit. You can also find out about the steps involved in achieving settled status.
