Re: UK citizen, Brexit: Obtaining C permit in future

What may have changed is the length of residence required before C permit eligibility; as I understand it (which may well be less than completely) the five-year residency period only applies to EU citizens, everybody else needs to wait ten years. Whether that will change for UK citizens is perhaps the most important question for you.
There is no change for UK citizens who were already resident by 31.12.2020 - under the citizens' rights agreement, and as confirmed by the embassy, Britons on B permits before the end of transition can still apply for a C permit after 5 years.
The language requirements remain unchanged; even EU citizens (apart from those from countries with the agreement that no language test is required) must comply with the new regulations that came into force a year ago (IIRC A1 written, A2 spoken for C permit).
