Petition Summary

The petitioner calls upon the European Parliament to act in order to facilitate that EU citizens not residing in their country of nationality are given special status to apply for citizenship in their country of residence, and as such can retain their existing rights as EU citizens by acquiring local nationality before the UK formally leaves the EU. Furthermore, citizens of the EU who are UK nationals residing in the UK shall be granted special rights to remain citizens of the EU upon application and satisfying any qualifying criteria to be established.
