BREXIT – Italian Government Plans to Safeguard Residence Rights of UK Nationals in Event of No Deal Brexit

The Italian government has announced that it is preparing legislation that will allow British citizens residing legally in Italy to remain resident in the event of a no-deal Brexit

No Deal

If no withdrawal agreement is reached between the EU and the UK, British citizens registered as residents at their local registry office (‘anagrafe’) at their town hall (‘commune’) by 29 March 2019 will be granted the rights and enough time to apply for the long-term resident status as per EU Directive 2003/109/EC. British nationals will thereby continue to enjoy rights such as access to healthcare, social benefits, employment, education, and family reunification.

Actions Items

  • UK nationals living in Italy are advised to register with their local town hall before 29 March 2019, whether Brexit occurs with a withdrawal deal or without one.
