This is a bit off and away from normal Fiverr topics of discussion, however, I know that there are some British expats who work on Fiverr and I think this might be of some interest.
Basically, as you will probably be aware, the UK is holding it’s get out of the EU referendum in June and I am just wondering if anyone knows what a yes (i.e leave) vote might mean for us expats who live in Europe?
I live in Malta and here it seems to be a case of if you apply for residency prior to an out vote you get to stay for as long as you like. However, after an out vote we would only then have the automatic right to live in either the UK or our current EU country of choice.
This is a bit of a concern for me as I don’t actually like Malta that much (nothing against the people it’s just too small) and am mulling a move to Cyprus. At the same time though, my partner is Hungarian and for lots of practical reasons it would be logically best to move there in the advent of an out vote.
I suppose what I would like to therefore ask, is would an out vote definitely remove our freedom of movement and our right to settle anywhere we like in the EU? What I do know is that hypothetically there would be a 2-year change over period before any restrictions came into effect. However, other expat-centric info is a bit sparse at best.
