Brexit: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The Embassy of Switzerland in the UK publishes a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) with regard to the changes for Swiss as well as British citizens in the context of Brexit. It covers many of the queries received from Swiss citizens and is updated on a regular basis as relevant new information becomes available. We appreciate your understanding that the Embassy of Switzerland cannot give binding information or advice for individual cases. In the light of the ongoing Brexit process and the negotiations about the UK’s future relationship with the EU and with Switzerland, there are many questions concerning the future legal situation which may not be answered with any certainty at this moment.

We have also made two videos explaining the impact of Brexit on the lives of Swiss citizens living in the UK. You can click on the following links to watch them:
