Establishing what will happen to rights we have as EU citizens is a waiting game. UK nationals need to discover if they have European heritage? You can “buy” EU citizenship by investing in Cyprus. Also Britain could agree continued residency for the 1.2m British expatriates living in EU countries in its exit negotiations, British expats in France are reluctant to “wait and see”. What steps can British citizens in France take ? Mairies are reporting an increase in the number of UK citizens enquiring about permanent residence and French citizenship. If you have been in France, legally – in other words made your tax declarations in France – for five years or more you can apply for either permanent European residence or French nationality. The first is your right whereas nationality, French authorities say, is a favour, thus not guaranteed.
