Implications of Brexit in the Area of Home Affairs

CITIZENS' RIGHTS

Based on the withdrawal agreement, there are no changes during the transition period on the existing rights of British citizens and their family members residing in the Czech Republic. After the end of the transition period, the citizens of the United Kingdom and their family members who have resided in the Czech Republic and continue to reside here after 31 December 2020 will retain all their existing rights associated with their stay in the Czech Republic. In order to preserve these rights, it is necessary to prove legal status in the Czech Republic, for example by holding a temporary or permanent residence permit.

In this context, the Czech Republic published recommendations for the citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and their family members residing in the Czech Republic who intend  to continue to reside here after 31 December 2020 (recommendation of the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic for the Citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in connection with the brexit (pdf, 114 kB).
 

POLICE COOPERATION

Cooperation of the Czech and UK law enforcement authorities during the transition period is (on the basis of the Withdrawal Agreement) regulated by the existing EU rules. This concerns e.g. cooperation involving Europol, Schengen Information System or other areas, such as exchange of information in criminal investigations. The Czech Republic prefers to keep the cooperation as close and efficient as possible even after the end of this transition period (i.e. since the beginning of 2021 at the earliest), however, its form and extent on the EU level will be known only after the end of negotiations on future partnership between the European Union and the United Kingdom.
 

PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION

The EU rules form the basis of data protection both in the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom. These rules continue to apply (on the basis of the Withdrawal Agreement) even after Brexit. Personal data protection as well as transfer of personal data between the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom are thus without changes until the end of the transition period (i.e. at least until the end of 2020). The Czech Republic prefers to keep the data protection rules of the European Union and the United Kingdom as compatible as possible even after the end of the transition period and the transfer of personal data between the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom as simple as possible. However, the decisive factor in this regard will be the evaluation of actual level of protection of personal data in the United Kingdom which should be timely prepared by the Commission.
