European Emigration Advisory Service

Now that the UK has fully left the EU, automatic freedom of movement no longer applies and the UK is regarded as a ‘third country’ in terms of citizens’ rights. As a result, UK citizens visiting the EU are now restricted to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period, and any Briton who wants to stay longer will need to apply in advance for a visa and/or residency permit.

You will be required to satisfy specific requirements which vary from country to country and visa to visa.

Blevins Franks’ new European Emigration Advisory Service has produced a series of visa and residency permit guides. They are designed to provide an overview of those visa and residency permits relevant to UK nationals who are moving to France, Spain, Portugal, Malta or Cyprus to retire and live off their pensions and investments.
