UK leaving the EU: what you need to know
Information for EU nationals in the UK and UK nationals living, working, visiting and studying in the EU.
On 29 March 2017, the government triggered Article 50, which begins the formal process of the UK leaving the EU.
The government is looking to secure the status of British nationals living in other member states and EU nationals already living in the UK, as early as possible.
The UK remains a full member until we exit the EU, and all rights and obligations of membership remain in place until then.
