Info sessions on UK citizens' rights in a post-Brexit Belgium

19:46 28/02/2019

With the Brexit deadline looming, the British ambassador to Belgium is continuing her Citizens’ Rights Outreach, a series of talks on the rights of British citizens living in the country.

The British embassy has been holding the free sessions across Belgium to update UK nationals working and living in the country on the Brexit situation and any steps they should take now.

With Thursday’s stop in Brussels completely full, another date has been added, on 7 March. Other dates this month include Ghent on 13 March, Tervuren on 19 March and Woluwe-Saint-Pierre on 21 March. Links to register for any of the sessions are on the embassy’s Facebook page.

The sessions are led by ambassador Alison Rose and other UK officials. The audience will have a chance to ask questions.

The embassy has also produced a Living in Belgium guide, which includes what British nationals should do now to ensure they can continue to live and work in the country post-Brexit. Topics include how to make sure you are registered as a legal resident and the agreement on citizens’ rights in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
