AFTER ARTICLE 50,
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
ARTICLE 50 OF THE TREATY OF LISBON

ARTICLE 50 OF THE TREATY OF LISBON GIVES THE LEAVING COUNTRY 2 YEARS TO NEGOTIATE AN EXIT DEAL WITH THE REMAINING 27 EU MEMBER STATES.

ONCE ARTICLE 50 IS TRIGGERED IT CAN’T BE STOPPED OR EXTENDED EXCEPT BY UNANIMOUS CONSENT OF THE EUROPEAN COUNCIL.

EXIT DEALS MUST BE APPROVED BY A “QUALIFIED MAJORITY” OF EU MEMBER STATES AND WILL BE SUBJECT TO DEBATE AND RATIFICATION IN MEMBER STATE’S NATIONAL PARLIAMENTS.

BRITISH EXPATS LIVING ACROSS EU MEMBER STATES ARE BECOMING MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR RIGHTS TO RESIDENCY.

HOW MANY BRITISH EXPATS LIVE IN THE EU?
ACCORDING TO THE UNITED NATIONS
1.200.000 BRITS LIVE ABROAD IN EUROPE
310.000 BRITS LIVE IN SPAIN
108.000 BRITS IN SPAIN ARE PENSIONERS
HOW MANY EU NATIONALS LIVE IN BRITAIN?
ACCORDING THE NATIONAL STATISTICS OFFICE
3.200.000 EUROPEANS ARE CURRENTLY LIVING IN UNITED KINGDOM
5% OF THE UNITED KINGDOM POPULATION IS EUROPEAN
2.000.000 OF THE EUROPEANS LIVING IN UNITED KINGDOM ARE IN WORK

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO
THEIR RIGHTS AFTER BREXIT?

THERESA MAY HAS PLEDGED TO GUARANTEE THE RIGHTS OF EU CITIZENS ALREADY LIVING IN BRITAIN AND THE RIGHTS OF BRITISH NATIONALS LIVING IN EU MEMBER STATES.

WILL EXPATS BE ENTITLED TO
EU HEALTHCARE BENEFITS?

BOTH SPAIN AND THE UK WILL WANT TO AVOID TIT-FOR-TAT RETALIATORY MEASURES. IN 2015 THE UK PAID €700M TO OTHER EU MEMBERS FOR TREATMENT OF UK NATIONALS.

COULD EXPATS BE
DEPORTED FROM SPAIN?

WITHDRAWING FROM A TREATY RELEASES THE PARTIES FROM ANY FUTURE OBLIGATIONS TO EACH OTHER, BUT DOES NOT AFFECT ANY RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS ACQUIRED UNDER IT BEFORE WITHDRAWAL. THEREFORE THERE WILL BE NO IMMEDIATE CHANGES TO EXPATS CIRCUMSTANCES IF LIVING IN SPAIN BEFORE BREXIT.
