  • LAWYER RESPONSE Dual national - am I covered under the Withdrawal Agreement?

    Apologies if this has already been asked. I did search but could not find the answer.


    My situation
    • German national by birth, age 66, single, been living in UK for the last 37 years
    • acquired Indefinite Leave to Remain back in the 1980s
    • acquired British citizenship in 2015 (retained my German citizenship)
    • was not required / entitled to apply for Settled Status
    • am not planning on moving abroad before the end of the transition period but might do so later

    My questions
    • I am "covered under the Withdrawal Agreement"?
      1. if yes: will I be eligible for S1 if I move to Spain or other EU country after 31/12/2020?
      2. if no: what would I have to do to become "covered under the Withdrawal Agreement" ?

    Many thanks for clarifying this for me

      yes you are covered by the WA as you are a German citizen who moved to the UK as an EU citizen and then naturalised in the UK. However the main benefit of the WA (applying for Settled Status) cannot extend to UK citizens. You can obviously use your German passport to move and live in another EU state and your UK passport to return to live in the UK at any time. If you wished to sponsor a family member (relationship established before 31 Dec 2020) then you could do so under the WA and not UK immigration law

        Many thanks for your response Tim M . That's very reassuring.

        I am still not clear though whether I qualify for S1 Health Care if I were to move to an EU country after 31/12/2020 - could you comment on that specifically, please? Thanks in advance
