UK decision to invoke Article 50 of the TEU: More information
For the time being, the United Kingdom remains a full member of the EU and rights and obligations continue to fully apply in and to the UK:
As an EU national, you're entitled to work — for an employer or as a self-employed person — in any EU country without needing a work permit.
Exception — Croatian nationals still face temporary restrictions on working in the EU.
And while doing so, you are entitled to live there — subject to certain conditions.
If you live and work in another EU country, it's important to be aware of the consequences for:
- your benefits (sickness, maternity/paternity, pensions, occupational accidents and diseases, death grants, unemployment, early retirement, family, etc.)
- where you have to pay tax.
- Work permits
- Equal treatment
- Abroad on short assignments (max 2 years)
- Cross-border commuting
- Civil servants abroad
