With decree 25 March 2019, n. 22 the Italian government outlines the measures that will apply if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

British nationals living in Italy in the event of no-deal Brexit

British citizens legally residing in Italy and their NON-EU family members can, within December 31, 2020:

  • if at the date of Brexit you have regularly resided in Italy since at least 5 years, you can apply for EU residence permit for long-term residents (Directive 2003/109/EC);
