A well-functioning border is also in the interests of the surrounding Spanish region, including the thousands of Spanish workers who cross the border every day. As the Prime Minister said in her statement to the House of Commons on 29 March, we are absolutely steadfast in our support of Gibraltar, its people and its economy.</p> more like this

answer text <p>For the purpose of applying for citizenship, individuals will be required to meet the current eligibility criteria for naturalisation. These include a period of continuous residence, being of good character, and having sufficient knowledge of English and of life in the UK. A person who is married to or the civil partner of a British citizen can apply for naturalisation once settled; others must wait until they have been settled for 12 months.</p><p>Those who are already permanently resident in the UK will be able to apply for citizenship if they meet the statutory requirements.</p><p>Those who are not permanently resident must first apply for settled status. To do so, they must have been resident in the UK before a specified date and have completed a period of five years’ continuous residence. Once they are settled they can apply for British citizenship, if they meet the other statutory requirements.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Prime Minister has been clear that we want to have reached an agreement about our future partnership, which includes citizens rights, by the time the two-year Article 50 process has ended in March 2019. The rights of EU citizens living in the UK and UK citizens living in the EU following exit is of importance to both sides, and we are sure it can be agreed in the time period set out by the Treaty.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Prime Minister has always been clear that our first priority is to reach agreement on the post-exit position of EU citizens now living in the UK and of UK nationals and living in other EU countries. The UK’s offer on citizens rights is set out in the policy paper “Safeguarding the position of EU citizens in the UK and UK nationals in the EU” and seeks to ensure that EU citizens in the UK retain their rights to residence, benefits and pensions, and access to services, including healthcare and education. It makes clear that the UK expects reciprocity for UK nationals living in the EU in return for its offer which we believe is a fair and serious one.</p> more like this
