The Foreign & Commonwealth Office is committed to ensuring that clear and accessible information is available for UK nationals living, working and travelling overseas, including in the EU. Our Embassies engage regularly with British citizens living in their host Member States. Particularly since the EU Referendum, we have been reaching out to UK nationals in the EU at frequent meetings, events and online. We are encouraging UK nationals to follow the ‘UK nationals in the EU’ page on www.gov.uk and to follow Embassy social media channels for the latest information on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. We are also planning for a further EU-wide public communications campaign for UK nationals in the EU when the practical implications of the Withdrawal Agreement have been finalised.
