Since March, the EU and the UK have continued regular negotiations despite the difficulties associated with the COVID 19 pandemic. The EU is conducting its negotiations on the basis of the mutually agreed political declaration. However, significant differences have not yet been resolved in some areas. These differences include fair competition, horizontal management of each agreement and fisheries. EU and UK negotiators Michel Barnier and David Frost and their teams have recently stepped up their negotiations. The clock is ticking, because an agreement must be reached quickly to have time for ratification by the European Parliament. 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. The EU wants to continue to forge a close partnership with the UK. We believe that it is possible to reach a fruitful agreement on the basis of the political declaration. However, it is important that we prepare for all possible outcomes of the negotiations. This includes preparing not to reach an agreement. The UK`s withdrawal from the European Union affects the right of residence of British nationals and their family members in Germany. Citizens of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland enjoy rights similar to those of EU citizens.
The EU has agreements with these countries on very extensive residence rights. If you are both a British citizen and a citizen of one of these countries, you should act as Jane does in our example.
