Without such a “Brexit agreement”, the UK becomes a third country in relation to EU member states, including Germany, on Brexit date. Therefore, UK citizens who were previously able to en-ter, live and work in Germany and other EU Member States as EU citizens under the rules of the Treaty on European Union (TEU) and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) without a residence permit would, at once, no longer be covered by these treaties on 31st January 2020 (or any later date Brexit may be postponed to). Therefore, the third-country nationals’ immi-gration regime becomes applicable to UK citizens entering, residing and working in Germany.
In order to ease the transition, German and EU legislators have already passed and planned various regulations for the case of a "No-Deal Brexit". These rules give UK nationals (and their family mem-bers) some privileges over other third-country nationals and are summarised below.
