What is the Brexit news? The Spanish Congress of Deputies has validated the Spanish Royal Decree-Law that would administer the status of U.K. nationals in the case of a no-deal Brexit.
Key Points of the Royal Decree-Law:
Background: On March 1, the government issued a Royal Decree-Law that encompasses the points mentioned above. The recent validation from the Spanish Congress of Deputies further confirms Spain’s plan to allow U.K. residents currently residing in Spain to stay in the case of a no-deal Brexit.
BAL Analysis: The U.K. is set to leave the European Union, and the U.K. Parliament has yet to pass a withdrawal agreement. Although the EU granted the U.K. a Brexit extension, it is still possible that it will leave the EU without a deal. Spain’s plan provides some certainty to non-EU family members of U.K. nationals, as they will retain their current status until Dec. 31, 2020 and will be able to apply for a residence permit in the case of a no-deal Brexit.
