UK CITIZENS IN THE EU AND GREECE AFTER THE END OF THE TRANSITION PERIOD
The end of the transition period is here. The Greek government and public administration have worked tirelessly to prepare for the next day, in order to guarantee that the long and strong relations between the UK and Greece will continue to the best interest of both countries and, most importanty, of their citizens.
The protection of the rights of UK nationals and their family members in Greece has been a priority since the beginning of the Brexit negotiations. It will continue to be so after 1 January 2021.
The Withdrawal Agreement guarantees that EU citizens and their family members who lived in the UK and UK nationals and their family members who lived in the EU prior to the end of the transition period retain the same rights as before after the end of the transition too: they can continue to live, study, work and travel freely between the UK and the EU after 1 January 2021.
UK nationals who live in Greece can find below information on the legal framework for the protection of their rights, information on travel and visas and a step by step guide for the application process to acquire the new residence documents provided for in the Withdrawal Agreement. There also options for temporary and permanent stay in Greece after the end of the transition period for UK nationals who are non beneficiaries of the Withdrawal Agreement.
