Most of us rarely travel now due to the coronavirus epidemic, traveling in Europe will be very different when the world opens up again.
British citizens who wish to move and live in the EU no longer automatically have the right to live and work there, but this option still exists, although some additional arrangements and correspondence are required.
2021 brought all the power of Brexit, and now is the golden age to move in the EU after Brexit. These aren’t the days when the whole world could cross the African continent without worry and a visa.
However, the dream of having a new home in Europe still exists, and you can live there happily. All you need is to do some planning, and wise work to achieve this, and we will explain all this in the post.
What to Consider before Moving and Living in the EU After Brexit?
Compared with other EU countries, Britain no longer has a special status. Now, it is recognized as a “third country”, and a country that has been separated from the European Union.
- You can easily stay in one or more than one EU member states for a maximum of 90 days within a 180-day time period, but if you want to travel to Europe, you will need to have a visa now. To get a visa, you will need to know and obey the entry policies of the country you choose to live in. Regrettably, this is too difficult now.
- Please also note that your certified experiences and qualification are no longer automatically recognized in the mainland. Whether you are an engineer, a dentist, a doctor, a designer, a caregiver, or a veterinarian, your credentials must be recognized by each country/region where you have worked.
- Also, when traveling, make sure you have at least six months before your passport expires, as most European countries need this. Otherwise, you could be banned for any kind of entry in the country at its border.
Living in Italy After Brexit
Moving to and living in Italy is possible after Brexit, although to make it permanent you must do a hard job.
You need to apply for Italian passport and a long-term visa. You have to fill out the special form shaped by the Italian management to check if you are eligible or not. You should have around £102 in your pocket to apply. Check out more about this, on this guide about how to apply for Italian passport.
If you want to stay in Italy for a long time with your family, and avail all the facilities like a house, education, and work, it is also available. Keep in mind that this kind of visa is non-permanent. It is suggested that you apply for a residence permit in this case.
Moving abroad after Brexit may be a headache, especially for the EU, but it is absolutely possible. A third-country standing in the UK means that you have to overcome many other obstacles to move to an EU country, for example Italy.
