Brexit: centralised information on the impact at the Belgian federal level
Since 1 February 2020, after full ratification of the withdrawal agreement, we have entered the transition period. This limited transition period has been agreed as part of the withdrawal agreement and will last at least until 31 December 2020. Until that time, there will be no changes for citizens, consumers, businesses, investors, students and researchers in the EU and the UK. The United Kingdom will no longer be represented in EU institutions, bodies, offices and agencies, but Union law will continue to apply to the United Kingdom until the end of the transition period.
The EU and the UK will use these months to agree on a new and fair partnership for the future, based on the political declaration adopted by the EU and the UK in October 2019.
In this connection, a central Brexit page has been created to familiarise you as a citizen or company with the consequences and implications of Brexit. There you will find, among other things, a general explanation of the situation involving Brexit, information for British citizens in Belgium and Belgian citizens in the United Kingdom, information for businesses, useful links, etc. In other words, the Brexit portal provides a simple overview of everything you need to know about the possible impact of Brexit at the Belgian federal level. It also tells you where you can go for more information and where you can find answers to specific questions in this context.
