Two more European Union territories, Poland and the Czech Republic, have stated they are arrganing urgent situation rules and regulations to grant British Citizens to live and work in their countries lawfully in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The Czechs pronounce that their outline law will signify the approximated 8,000 British Citizens residing in the country are relieved from standard immigration rules until the end of the December 2020.
With a 21-month immunity phase, it happens to be the most lavish offers made so far by any associate state for British Citizens living in the alliance.
On the other hand, it will only turn out to be active if the UK responds and promises the entitlements of approximately 40,000 Czech citizens residing in Great Britain.

The projected law will propose aid to British Citizens in Poland and the Czech Republic – even though they only signify approximately 14,000 of the assessed 1 million British Citizens living in the region.

The pass or identification card will have the word Brexit mentioned on it, making it unique from the normal residency permit. It will also defend the privileges of non-EU spouses of British Citizens.
The 25-page draft document which emerges on the website of the government statute centre states that once the UK leaves at middle of night on 29-30 March 2019, British Citizens residing in Poland will have until 30 March 2020 to verify their rights by gaining a temporary residence permit or permanent residence in the country. Applications submitted later will not be counted.
