FAQ – United Kingdom

 

Following the UK’s exit from the EU and the end of the withdrawal period agreed between the two parties on 31 December 2020, the Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons (AFMP) between Switzerland and the EU no longer applies with the United Kingdom. From 1 January 2021, UK citizens are no longer citizens of the EU; instead, they have the status of third-country citizens.
