Moving to Switzerland after Brexit
With the current corona virus covid 19 pandemic effectively shutting down the world it will be a little while before we all get moving again. But when Europe does open up its borders what has changed with Moving to Switzerland after Brexit?
Moving to Switzerland after Brexit
Well the UK Government has been busy negotiating the withdrawal agreement with the EU members but Switzerland is not a member of the EU. The UK has already agreed some UK-Swiss citizens rights though.
The UK has reached an agreement with Switzerland, which protects the rights of UK nationals resident in Switzerland by the end of the transition period on 31st December 2020. During this time, nothing will change for UK nationals who can continue to live, work and move to Switzerland.
The agreement protects UK nationals’ right to stay and to work, including frontier workers, family reunification and access to healthcare. It also protects social security benefits, access to an uprated state pension and export benefits, and the continued recognition of professional qualifications.
For more information read the UK-Swiss Citizens’ Rights Agreement and the UK government Explainer.
