UK and EEA EFTA reach citizens' right agreement in case of no Brexit deal

The UK has reached an agreement to protect citizen's rights in Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein in a no-deal scenario.

The three countries are members of the European Free Trade Association, within the European Economic Area.

This means EEA EFTA nationals living in the UK and vice versa can continue living their lives abroad as they do now.

The EEA EFTA separation agreement will apply if the Withdrawal Agreement is agreed with the EU.
