The UK Government has said that its citizens are top priority in the March 2019 Brexit negotiations. British Ambassador to Spain Simon Manley said the goal is ‘an agreement that provides citizens with greater certainty about their future’.

We want to help you prepare for all scenarios and further relevant information will continue to be made available on
