Expats may be required to produce regular savings proof

However, British expats already living in the EU are unlikely to be affected as it is probable that the government will succeed in ensuring that reciprocal agreements protect their right to reside within the EU.

As it stands, non-EU nationals wishing to live in EU countries have to provide documentation in relation to their expat regular savings, income and pensions in order to receive EU residency visas, so it is possible that British nationals will have to do the same.

“It is likely there would be a system of long-term permits and residency. We want what is in the best interests of the British people but this will form part of the discussion,” a Home Office spokesperson told media.

However, there is still the possibility that Prime Minister Theresa May and her government might be able to achieve a more favourable deal with EU negotiators; in such a situation British nationals may be subject to exemptions on various EU residency visa rules.

The EU Commission, supported by France and Germany, has already indicated that it might introduce a visa waiver for British nationals, albeit for a fee of around £10.
