Webinar: Can I travel, work and retire in other EU countries?

14 Mar 2023 12:06 PM | Tim Reynolds (Administrator)

On Monday 27 March 2023 from 12h00 noon to 13h30 the Expat Welcome Desk of commissioner.brussels is holding its third free webinar of the year for UK citizens. The topic of this webinar will be ‘Can I travel, work and retire in other EU countries?

The webinar will explore the rules and frameworks for UK citizens based in Belgium who want to move around the EU. UK citizens residing in Belgium are now subject to the same rules as other non-EU citizens when it comes to traveling, working, studying or retiring in another EU country. This is the case for both post-Brexit arrivals living in Belgium with a Single Permit and pre-Brexit residents who have their rights in Belgium protected by their M-Card.

Join the webinar to get the lowdown on intra-EU mobility for the British of Brussels!

Issues addressed will include:

  • Time limits on travel outside Belgium and recommended documents for travelling
  • Practical differences between Schengen and non-Schengen countries
  • Things to consider if an employer sends a UK citizen on assignment to another EU country
  • Conditions and requirements for obtaining residence as an employee or student in another EU country
  • Possibilities and conditions for retiring in another EU country
  • Clarifications on the upcoming Entry-Exit System and ETIAS (Electronic Travel and Information Authorisation System)

The webinar aims to provide both theoretical information and also concrete case studies to allow participants to gain a more practical perspective. After a brief presentation, there will be a Q+A session. Some of these issues will be explored in more detail through later webinars or via the Brexit Brief newsletter (see below).

The webinar will be chaired by Amélie Bovy, Legal Adviser at the Welcome Desk, commissioner.brussels and the speakers will be Jo Antoons, Managing Partner, Fragomen Brussels, Andreia Ghimis, Immigration Manager, Fragomen Brussels and Ines Ramlau, Immigration Consultant, Fragomen Brussels.
