Re: Do Brits have the same rights as EU citizens in Switzerland after Brexit?

At the end of this month, Britain will no longer have an representation or political power in EU institutions. All the UK MEPs will have lost their jobs, as will some other Brits working in other positions within the EU.

However, other than that, nothing changes.

Boris has said the transition period must end 31.12.2020. But as he is known liar and promise breaker, who knows whether that will happen.

Switzerland and the UK have already agreed their relationship post transition period. Not much changes for us who live here already. But when we travel to the EU, we will have to have our residency permit which will act as a Schengen visa, as well as our passport. It's possible the current CH/EU/EEA passport control queue will change to CH/EU/EEA/UK - but only if Britain changes it's UK/EEA/EU/CH queue to UK/CH rather than just UK.

No. They will have better rights. The best rights, in fact. They'll have so many rights, they'll be sick of them!

Btw, I read an interesting piece of pop-science sometime ago and essentially people are happiest with a limited choice. Too much and one gets confused. Too little and one feels squeezed. I guess with Brexit we'll see emptier Tesco shelves and thus, happier Brits?

I always wondered what the attraction for English people was to move to Switzerland.

Re: Do Brits have the same rights as EU citizens in Switzerland after Brexit?

Thank you for the replies and pointers. So basically nothing changes for personal situations until the end of the year and it all drags on for another 11 months. When will it ever end?!
On the other hand 11 months left on the clock for British citizens to make any changes to one's situation to stay under the old rules it seems, whether in CH or in the EU. Interesting.

Re: Do Brits have the same rights as EU citizens in Switzerland after Brexit?

Hi,
we need to enjoy every day of the transition period and hope that it is extended for much longer. Also apply for Swiss citizenship. There is no upside or benefit to Brexit unless you are rich and are betting on the UK economy going into free fall.

trying to be happy

The transition period of course could be extended, but it won't go on for decades or a lifetime.
Also you don't need Swiss citizenship to work/reside/continue to work/continue to reside in CH after the transition period has ended.

The smaller choice in Switzerland only bugs me when I want asparagus or strawberries out of season, but it makes me appreciate them more when they are in season. Swings and roundabouts.

Re: Do Brits have the same rights as EU citizens in Switzerland after Brexit?

The Brits (or the majority of them) have voted to not have the same rights as other EU citizens.
By this principle, why should they have the same rights after Brexit?
It is like they didn't know what the heck they were bloody voting

That does not make any sense. For tourism the UK deal will be with the Schengen region, not individual countries within it. UK citizens will get visa free travel in Schengen and Schengen citizens get visa free travel in the UK. The Schengen countries are not going to agree to giving the UK visa free travel in the Schengen area unless they all get the same treatment in the UK.

So the most likely outcome is simply three queues: UK, Schengen countries and All others. It is also easier to handle from an administrative point of view as they can handle all Schengen flights in one area and so on.

The big question is how to handle flights between the UK and Ireland. Will both countries continue to handle such flights as domestic as they are now or not. Both countries have committed to continuing the CTA agreement and the EU parliament has agreed to it as well, but that means the UK borders remain open...

There is no reason though for any rights issues to change with British citizens in CH after Brexit since CH is not EU.
Also it is only logical that rights should stay the same, for otherwise the UK could change the rights of 35'000 CH citizens living in the UK.

Re: Do Brits have the same rights as EU citizens in Switzerland after Brexit?

Hi,

you will not need a Swiss passport to stay in Switzerland after Brexit but after the transition period we are likely to be ranked behind swiss and eu/efta candidates for any jobs and a swiss passport will be more valuable than a UK one as it also provides freedom of movement which uk citizens will forfeit when Brexit occurs.

There is no reason for treating the UK any different from the other third countries and it is to be expected that other third countries such as the US will pressure us to do so.

Not enough exits in a Swiss roundabout and only two directions to swing?
