The political declaration provides that the EU-UK agreement on future relations will essentially be an economic and security partnership. In accordance with the political declaration, the 27 EU Member States agreed on 25 February 2020 on the negotiating mandate of the European Commission, which is negotiating on behalf of the Member States on future relations between the EU and the UNITED Kingdom. On this basis, the EU`s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, presented in mid-March a draft comprehensive agreement on the new partnership with the UK, to which other elements were added. You can find this and the others on the UK Task Force`s website. The United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union on 1 February 2020.

In this context, the agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community, known as the “withdrawal agreement”, which came into force and came into force on that date, was concluded between the EU and the United Kingdom. It applies to the whole of the EU, including Germany. Note: Even if you are a national of an EU member state or another country with which the EU has an agreement on the right of residence, EU rules still grant you the right to obtain documents under the withdrawal agreement, as explained below. However, this pays off and is generally beneficial to you.
