A lot of UK citizens in Germany are now in contact with their local Foreigners’ Office (Ausländerbehörde) about their residence rights under the Withdrawal Agreement. Some have had interviews for their new residence document and some have even received the new document.
Some of you have also applied for German citizenship and we are aware that people still have applications in progress. Some may have encountered difficulties, particularly given restrictions due to Corona.
If any of this applies to you, we would love to hear from you!
Your input will help us understand what is happening all across Germany. In turn, this will help us to inform other UK citizens as well as to give feedback to the relevant German authorities. That way we hope to improve the process for UK citizens as well as for the German authorities themselves.
It should take less than 5 minutes to complete each survey.
