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. 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. 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. 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. Note: Even if you are a national of an EU member state or another country with which the EU has an agreement on the right of residence, EU rules still grant you the right to obtain documents under the withdrawal agreement, as explained below. However, this pays off and is generally beneficial to you. Unfortunately, the federal Department of the Interior, Construction and Municipality does not have the authority to advise you on a case-by-case basis. For advice on a case-by-case basis, contact your foreign service or contact legal advice. If you have a permanent right of residence on request, the word “permanent stay” is in the second line on the back of the card, below “legal activity.” We advise you to check our data protection regularly at the end of the transition period to check for updates and new resources. The RGPD is incorporated into UK legislation as a `UK RGPD`, but there could be further developments on how we deal with certain issues such as UK-EU transfers. The RGPD will be maintained in national law at the end of the transitional period, but the UK will have independence to review the framework. You must act to preserve your right to stay in Germany, if you also regularly review our data protection guide – and in particular our guidelines on international transfers. and update them to reflect the latest developments. The RGPD continues to apply to all organisations in Europe that send you data, so you may need to help them decide how personal data is transmitted to the UK in accordance with the RGPD. Note: In derogation from the previous five-year rule, certain exceptions may apply.
These cases concern: – UK nationals who were economically active and who were in Germany under the right of free movement and who, under certain conditions (including age, early retirement, incapacity to work) retire or no longer engage in economic activity for any other reason, or – family members of a deceased British national entitled to the withdrawal treaty or – in the event of death before 31 December 2020 – economic activity or right to free movement if, at the time of their death, these family members were permanently residing at the address of the UK national.
