Since the 1960s, many Britons have moved to southwestern France, especially the Dordogne. But Brexit could throw a wrench in the works: as non-EU-citizens, they would face new restrictions.
Ahead of Brexit, UK citizens living in the Netherlands applied to court to have their rights as EU citizens recognized and protected. The court has passed their queries on to the European Court of Justice.
Estonia is expected to get a 100-to-one-euro return on investment for its e-Residency program, which lets anybody start a business from afar. It is even planning to launch ‘estcoins,’ its own cryptocurrency.
The number of Britons seeking German citizenship nearly quadrupled last year. The number is expected to rise as Brexit nears.
What exactly defines EU citizenship after Brexit is about to be decided by an Amsterdam court. Five British plaintiffs who argue their EU rights will exist beyond 2019 want their case referred to Europe's top court.
