Immigration: EEA Nationals
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 9 March 2017 to Question 66201, on immigration: EEA nationals, whether confirmation of this status will be needed once the UK has left the EU.
Answered by: Mr Robert Goodwill

The rights of EU nationals remain unchanged while we are a member of the European Union and they do not need any additional documents to prove their status.

The Government has been clear that securing the status of EU nationals in the UK, and that of British citizens in the EU, will be a priority as soon as negotiations begin.

There are a number of options for exactly how the Government will secure the status of EU nationals here and what they will need to do to confirm that status following the UK’s exit from the EU, and it would be inappropriate to give further detail in advance of negotiations.
