answer text <p>As set out in the Political Declaration, the UK and the EU have agreed their intention to put in place a comprehensive air transport agreement (CATA). This will provide market access for UK and EU airlines, and close cooperation on aviation safety, security and air traffic management. Where market access beyond Europe is currently determined by EU-negotiated arrangements, the Withdrawal Agreement sets out that the EU will notify treaty partners and third countries that the UK is to be treated as an EU Member State for the purposes of its international agreements during the implementation period, including air service agreements.</p><p>In the event of a no deal both the UK and the EU have plans in place to ensure that travel will continue in the short term. For travel with non-EU third countries, as set out on gov.uk, the UK has already secured a number of arrangements, including with the US and Canada, to ensure continuity of travel to third countries where air services agreements are currently provided for by virtue of the UK’s membership of the EU.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>In the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal, UK nationals undertaking paid work, including in the music industry, in the EU should check with the Embassy of the countries they plan to travel to for what kind of visa or permit, if any, they will need. The FCO provides advice on their <a href="https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice" target="_blank">country-specific travel pages online</a>. Information about entry requirements for those intending to work or provide a service in an EU Member State is listed on our <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/providing-services-to-eea-and-efta-countries-after-eu-exit" target="_blank">advice pages for UK businesses</a> on gov.uk.</p><p>The Political Declaration agreed between the UK and the EU acknowledges the importance of mobility for cultural cooperation. The UK has proposed reciprocal mobility arrangements with the EU that support businesses to provide services and move their talented people. We also want to discuss how to facilitate the temporary mobility of self-employed professionals and employees providing services. The detail of our reciprocal mobility arrangements will be discussed in the next phase of negotiations.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>Currently, UK professionals benefit from automatic recognition of their professional qualifications by EU member states for seven professions: nurses, midwives, doctors, dentists, pharmacists, architects and veterinary surgeons. All other qualifications are only recognised if they are deemed to be of an equivalent standard to the EU Member State’s own standards. If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, UK nationals will no longer have access to the EU’s reciprocal system of automatic professional qualification recognition.</p><p>UK nationals seeking recognition to practice regulated professions in the EU after a no deal exit would have to check the national policies and rules of the relevant Member State in which they intend to practice. The Government has published advice for UK professionals seeking to have their qualifications recognised in EU member states in the event of ‘no deal’ on Gov.uk.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Following extensive engagement by the Government, we are pleased that all Member States have now made commitments to protect the residence rights of UK nationals in a no deal scenario, albeit to varying degrees of detail. The EU Commission has published details at: <a href="https://ec.europa.eu/info/brexit/brexit-preparedness/citizens-rights_en" target="_blank">https://ec.europa.eu/info/brexit/brexit-preparedness/citizens-rights_en</a>.</p><p>Member States have also made some unilateral commitments to protect the right to work, study, and access to benefits and services in a no deal scenario. For example Poland has committed to offering permanent residency covering the right to work and Malta will create a new ‘ad hoc’ status allowing UK nationals to work without a permit. To understand the extent to which each Member State has put in place protections, UK nationals should visit the FCO “living in guides” on gov.uk and the relevant web pages of their host countries.</p><p>We continue to engage our EU counterparts to encourage full reciprocity of our offer to EU citizens in the UK, in which they will continue to be able to work, study, and access benefits and services in a no deal exit as they can today.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Government has always been clear and steadfast in our commitment to protecting citizens' rights. The Government is already implementing its offer to guarantee the rights of EU citizens in the UK and the EU Settlement Scheme opened fully on 30 March and to date, over 800,000 citizens have made an application.</p><p>The EU Settlement Scheme, has been implemented by the changes to Appendix EU to the Immigration Rules, which are made under section 3(2) of the Immigration Act 1971. These legislative measures are consistent with the Government’s commitment that in any scenario, EU citizens resident in the UK by exit day will be able to stay and continue living their lives broadly as they do now.</p><p>On 27 February, the House supported an amendment tabled by Alberto Costa MP to seek a joint UK-EU commitment to adopt Part II of the Withdrawal Agreement whatever the outcome of negotiations. The Government has since written to Michel Barnier twice on this matter. On 21 June Michel Barnier responded to the Secretary of State’s most recent letter of 17 June and we are carefully considering our response.</p>

answer text <p>My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union has regularly met with the EU Commission to discuss preparations for leaving the EU.</p><p>The Government has been clear that the unique social, political and economic circumstances of Northern Ireland must be reflected in any arrangements that apply in a no deal scenario. We are absolutely committed to upholding the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement, and would do everything possible to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.</p><p>In a no deal scenario, the UK Government is committed to entering into discussions urgently with the European Commission and the Irish Government to jointly agree long-term measures to avoid a hard border and to limit the impact of a no deal exit on life on the island of Ireland.</p><p>We have confirmed a unilateral approach to checks, processes and tariffs to do all we can to avoid a hard border. The UK Government would not introduce any new checks or controls on goods crossing from Ireland to Northern Ireland, including any new customs declarations for nearly all goods.</p><p>The UK temporary tariff regime would therefore not apply to goods crossing from Ireland into Northern Ireland.</p><p>We would need to apply a small number of measures strictly necessary to comply with international legal obligations, protect the biosecurity of the island of Ireland, or to avoid the highest risks to Northern Ireland businesses - but these measures would not require checks at the border.</p>

answer text <p>DExEU Ministers and officials have regular discussions with their counterparts in the Department for Health and Social Care to discuss a wide range of issues related to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.</p><p>Subject to the Withdrawal Agreement being agreed by Parliament, where the UK or an EU Member State is responsible for the healthcare of those within the scope of the Agreement, these individuals will continue to be entitled to reciprocal healthcare cover, including EHIC rights, from that country. For individuals not in scope of the Withdrawal Agreement, and as part of our future relationship with the EU, we have said that we want continued participation in the EHIC scheme.</p><p>In the event of a no deal exit, reciprocal healthcare cannot be protected unilaterally and requires reciprocity from the EU or individual Member States. We have a duty to ensure that any potential harmful impacts on our citizens in the EU, and on EU citizens residing in the UK, are minimised as far as possible.</p><p>That is why, in the event of no deal, the UK is seeking an EU-wide approach or bilateral arrangements with Member States to transitionally apply the current social security coordination regulations, including reciprocal healthcare, in full until the end of 2020. This includes current EHIC arrangements. This will provide certainty to individuals who move to, visit or work in the UK or EU until that date. UK Government Ministers highlighted the importance of transitionally maintaining these arrangements in letters sent to Ministerial counterparts in each Member State.</p><p> </p>
