We have reached a reciprocal agreement with the EU, which safeguards the rights of EU citizens living in the UK and UK nationals living in the EU.

This agreement, highlighted green in the Withdrawal Agreement legal text, means citizens resident before the end of the implementation period will be able to continue living their lives broadly as they do now.

The Government is now focusing on the successful domestic implementation of the agreement. We are also seeking further details on the steps Member States are taking to protect the status of UK nationals resident in the EU.
