IMPACT – HIGH
What is the change? The Polish government has published a draft bill outlining the rights of United Kingdom nationals already living in Poland before March 29, 2019 to be applied if the U.K. withdraws from the European Union without an agreement. If Brexit is delayed, the draft bill would only come into effect as of the U.K.’s date of exit from the EU and only in a no-deal Brexit scenario. The bill is still in the draft stage and needs to be approved by the government at the voting stage.
Key provisions in the bill:
Analysis & Comments: The draft bill makes it imperative that all U.K. nationals residing in Poland complete an EU national registration and obtain a certificate of registration before March 29; otherwise, they will forfeit their ability to apply for residency under the Brexit route and immediately be considered third-country nationals as of Brexit day. Although the registration procedures are already mandatory, many U.K. nationals may be unaware of them or have not completed them because as EU nationals they currently enjoy free movement to work and reside in Poland.
