France remains one of the most popular destinations for many people who are tempted to move from Britain to countries with a nicer climate and a more relaxed way of life. The question now is how will a removal to France after brexit be undertaken.  The  UK left the EU on 31 January 2020 and the terms of the  departure are covered by the Withdrawal Agreement. Any  UK citizen living lawfully in an EU country on or before 31 December 2020, will benefit from being covered by the terms of the withdrawal agreement.

Removals to France and the withdrawal agreement

​Under the withdrawal agreement, you will be able to undertake removals to  France after Brexit  up to and including 31 December 2020 and enjoy the benefit of being covered by the Withdrawal Agreement. If you are thinking of undertaking  removals to France in 2020, then you will benefit from all that is agreed in the Brexit withdrawal agreement.

​​If you want to stay more than 90 days in France you will have to apply for a long-stay visa before you travel – see the French visa site (visas not available yet of course for UK citizens)

​ After 31 December 2020 it may be harder to gain legal residence – France may include language and other integration requirements. An integration contract. ​​

After Brexit  your employer or company will need to obtain permission for you to work.

As a Third Country National, you would be able to spend no more than 90 days at a time in France  unless you have a visa.
