Surrey County Council and Brexit

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is preparing to leave the European Union. Across the UK, prudent planning is being undertaken to build on normal emergency planning work.

As such, Surrey County Council are reviewing emergency plans in light of a no deal exit. We have been working with all our partners including the Local Resilience Forum, Health, Highways England and Department of Transport to assess what impacts there may be on our residents and wider community.

UK Nationals living in the EU

Until the UK leaves the EU, the UK remains a full member of the EU and UK nationals retain their legal status as EU citizens. As a UK national, there will be no change to your rights and status if you live in the EU while the UK remains in the EU.

GOV.UK has more information if you are a UK National living in the EU but outside of the UK.

The government has produced country by country guidance.

EU Citizens in the UK

If you are a European Union citizen, you and your family will be able to apply to get either settled or pre-settled status in the UK. This will mean you can continue living in the UK after December 2020.

GOV.UK has more information if you are an EU citizen continuing to live in the UK after it leaves the EU.

You can get Assisted Digital support to use the EU Settlement Scheme online application form if you're in the UK and do not have the appropriate access, skills or confidence to complete the form.
