Moving from France to England: Post-Brexit Checklist

If you are planning on moving back to England from France, you should be fine to do so if all of your family have British passports. However, following Brexit, family members with EU or other nationalities will need to apply for a family visa, before being granted residence in the UK. This is particularly important for French nationals looking to work in the UK, since visa-free visits for EU citizens after Brexit are limited to six months and must not involve any paid work. 

  • Notify and de-register from French services and local authorities.
  • Re-register for essential services in the UK.
  • Prepare an inventory of your belongings pre-move.
  • Check UK border restrictions for prohibited items.
  • Ensure your pet has a microchip, rabies vaccination, and necessary documentation.
  • Register for tax self-assessment upon return to the UK.
  • Sort out necessary transfers (schools, pension, French assets, currency).
  • Obtain vehicle insurance for EU-registered vehicles.
  • Book accommodation in the UK.
