If there is a no Brexit deal, British people that arrive in Belgium after the 29th of March (the date the UK will leave the EU) will not automatically have the right to work there. They will be subject to the same rules as people from countries outside the EU.
Belgium wants the UK to reciprocate this gesture by giving the 35,000 Belgians living in the UK the same rights. “Transitory measures have been drawn up in case there is no withdrawal agreement between the UK and the EU. Of course, we are still hoping the UK will approve the Brexit deal”, Mr Peeters said.
