A transitional period has been agreed for the period following the UK`s withdrawal from the EU, which will end on 31 December 2020. During this transitional period, the right of residence remained unchanged. It is only after the end of the transition period that the legal situation will change. The United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union on 1 February 2020. In this context, the agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community, known as the “withdrawal agreement”, which came into force and came into force on that date, was concluded between the EU and the United Kingdom. It applies to the whole of the EU, including Germany. The withdrawal agreement provides for a transitional period until 31 December 2020, renewable once for one or two years if the EU and the UK agree on this point. Before the withdrawal, a withdrawal agreement was negotiated to ensure that the main political and economic relations between the EU and the UK were not separated overnight. The agreement has been in force since 1 February 2020, when the UK left the EU. It provides for a transition period until 31 December 2020, during which time EU legislation will continue to apply to the UK and the UK will continue to be part of the EU internal market and the EU customs union. During this transition period, the EU and the UK are negotiating their future relations.
The political declaration on future relations, adopted by both sides, accompanies the withdrawal agreement and sets the framework for the negotiations. It is essential that the VA not only guarantee the right to life and work in the country of residence at the end of the transition period, but also include areas such as health rights s1, aggregation and pension increases. The agreement also says that we can leave our host country for five years without losing our right to return. Other issues related to withdrawal, including social security, including pension rights or recognition of professional qualifications, are not discussed here. For these questions, talk to the appropriate authorities, for example. B to the social security agencies or agencies listed here, if you have any questions regarding the recognition of professional qualifications.

The following questions relate only to the impact of the UK`s withdrawal from the European Union on your residence in Germany. Since his departure, the UK has had no say in the EU institutions.
