D'Iwwergangsphas vum Brexit ass geschwënn eriwwer, et kommen eng Partie Ännerungen op eis zou.

D'brittesch Ambassaden a ganz Europa hu Recommandatioune matgedeelt, fir dass Leit mat der brittescher Nationalitéit ouni Problem an hirer Wal-Heemecht weider kënne liewen. Esou och zu Lëtzebuerg.
Zanter dem 31. Januar 2020 ass den Austrëtt vun de Britten aus der EU offiziell. Momentan befanne mir eis awer nach an enger Iwwergangsphas, déi eréischt Enn Dezember ausleeft. Da gëlle fir d'Britten, déi an der EU liewen, nei Reegelen. Esou och fir déi brittesch Matbierger zu Lëtzebuerg.

"If you are a British national who doesn't have another EU-nationality and if you are here on a carte de séjour as oppose to a carte de légitimation then you'll need to apply for a new residence cart.", esou den John Marshall vun der brittescher Ambassade zu Lëtzebuerg.

Dobäi recommandéiert d'Ambassade de betraffene Leit, och e lëtzebuergesche Führerschäin unzefroen a sech bei der CNS unzemellen. Et soll een och drun denken, säi Pass ze erneieren.

Et ginn awer och eng Partie Britten zu Lëtzebuerg, déi sech elo fir eng Duebelnationalitéit entscheet hunn.

"In the 4 years since the referendum took place there have been around 1500 British nationals who successfully applied for Luxemburgish citizenship.", esou nach den John Marshall.

Mir hunn een Englänner getraff, dee virun 2 Joer decidéiert huet, eng Duebelnationalitéit unzehuelen.

"Comme j'habite au Luxembourg depuis longtemps maintenant, bien sûr je voulais prendre la nationalité, mais c'est le Brexit qui m'a vraiment poussé à le faire.", erkläert den Adam Walder, e Britt, dee schonns 15 Joer laang am Grand-Duché wunnt.

Och wann hie vun de neie Reglementer duerch seng Duebelnationalitéit net direkt betraff ass, mécht hie sech awer Suergen, wéi et weidergeet. Et wier komesch, dass legal Pabeiere vun engem Dag op deen aneren net méi an der Rei sinn.

"Tout vas basculer. Tous les papiers sont en ordre jusque-là et après tout change. Et la chose la plus importante c'est quand ne sais toujours pas ce qui va se passer.", esou den Adam Walder nach.

De britteschen Ambassadeur huet awer kloergemaach, dass Britten ouni Problem kënne weider zu Lëtzebuerg bleiwen, wa se déi puer Recommandatiounen erfëllen an och kéinte si zu all Zäitpunkt zeréck an England reesen.

UK GOVERNMENT WRITES TO THOUSANDS OF BRITS LIVING IN EUROPE TO PREPARE FOR THE END OF THE TRANSITION PERIOD

  • One of the largest UK Government direct mail campaigns to UK Nationals living in EU and EFTA member states, with 365,000 customers on Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) database contacted.

  • UK Nationals resident before 31 December can continue living and working in Luxembourg but may need to register or apply for residency.

  • UK State Pensioners will continue to receive their pensions as they do now.

The UK Government has written to 365,000 UK Nationals living in Europe with advice on the actions they need to take to prepare for the end of the UK transition period on 31 December. This includes 672 letters issued to UK nationals in Luxembourg.

The letters, sent to UK State Pensioners and benefit recipients, give advice on how to register for residency and healthcare, exchange driving licences and check new passport validity rules online. It is one of the largest-ever mail outs by the UK Government to UK nationals living in the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

British Ambassador to Luxembourg, John Marshall said:

“As we approach the end of the Transition Period, there are some actions UK Nationals living in Luxembourg need to take. These include applying for a new residence card; exchanging their UK driving licence for a Luxembourg one; checking the validity on their passport; or applying for a new EHIC card if they are an S1 holder. Follow the Embassy Facebook page for regular updates and reminders on what you need to do”

The UK Government has been running a public information campaign featuring online, radio and newspaper adverts across 30 countries informing UK Nationals of the actions they need to take. This is in addition to the hundreds of town hall meetings, street surgeries and online Q&As run by the UK’s Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates across Europe.

The UK Government has also allocated £3 million for charities and community voluntary organisations across Europe to assist UK Nationals that may need additional help to register or apply to protect their residency rights. This includes potentially at-risk groups, such as pensioners and disabled people and those living in remote areas or who have mobility difficulties. Beneficiaries include SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, the Church of England diocese in France and Age in Spain.

UK Nationals can find the most up to date information on actions they may need to take in the ‘Living in Guide’ for their country at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/living-in-luxembourg
