UK sanctions on the Republic of Guinea-Bissau

This page provides guidance on the UK's sanctions regime on the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

The UK is leaving the EU. This page tells you about sanctions regimes after Brexit if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, and will be updated if anything changes.

The Republic of Guinea-Bissau sanctions regime

The Republic of Guinea-Bissau (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 are intended to ensure that certain financial, trade and immigration sanctions relating to the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, which are currently in force in the UK under EU legislation and related UK regulations, continue to operate effectively after the UK leaves the EU.

This sanctions regime is aimed at encouraging the abandonment of actions that undermine the peace, security or stability of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau. When these regulations come into force they will replace, with substantially the same effect, relevant existing EU legislation and related UK regulations.
