Brexit - United Kingdom exiting the EU

The UK will leave the EU. This will bring changes for Swedish citizens and companies in the UK. Here you, as a Swedish citizen, will find information on in what way brexit may affect you.


On 10 April 2019, the European Council agreed to a further extension to allow for the ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement by both Parties. Such an extension should last as long as necessary and, in any event, no longer than 31 October 2019. The European Council also recalled that, under Article 50(3) TEU, the Withdrawal Agreement may enter into force on an earlier date, should the Parties complete their respective ratification procedures before 31 October 2019. Consequently, the withdrawal should take place on the first day of the month following the completion of the ratification procedures or on 1 November 2019, whichever is the earliest.
Here is a link to the full agreement.
