This forum will provide free legal advice for

  • EEA/EU nationals wishing to acquire permanent residency and UK citizenship
  • UK Cypriots wishing to acquire Cypriot citizenship

While your legal status will not change until the UK concludes its exit from the European Union in 2019 safeguarding your future rights is key.

  • This event will not be a political forum to discuss Brexit. The aim is to provide clear, practical advice on maintaining your rights post Brexit.
