TravelExpats: Can I still move to Europe after Brexit? Spain, Ireland and France


Can I move to The Republic of Ireland after Brexit?

Unlike other EU countries, UK nationals do not need a visa or residency permit to live, work or study in Ireland.

This is thanks to the Common Travel Area (CTA) agreed upon by the UK and Irish governments.

According to Gov.uk: “UK nationals do not need a visa or residency permit to live, work or study in Ireland.

“Within the Common Travel Area (CTA), British and Irish citizens can live and work freely in each other’s countries and travel freely between them.

“Both the UK and Irish governments are committed to protecting the CTA.”

The Government website adds: “Under the CTA, British and Irish citizens can move freely and reside in either jurisdiction and enjoy associated rights and privileges, including the right to work, study and vote in certain elections, as well as to access social welfare benefits and health services.”

However, if you are planning to move to Ireland, you must tell the UK Government offices that deal with your benefits, pension and tax if you are moving or retiring abroad.
