Britain has set a deadline for the UK exit from the European Union on January 31, which will be a historic day, as text of Article 50 will be finalized and the country will not be in the European, according to The Guardian.

The newspaper said: “People who want the Kingdom to remain within the European Union feel that there will be time to enjoy the rights of citizens of the Union, because the United Kingdom will remain part of the single market for another 11 months”.

In the same vein, The Guardian monitored some things they could still do in 2020 during the transition period.

Vacation in the European Union

Citizens of the Kingdom continue to travel to any EU member state until December 31, 2020, without any obstacles such as visas, which will differ after Britain leaves the European Union and it is likely that visa-free flights will continue for a stay of up to 90 days.

Have a summer job

During the transition period, students and any other workers will still have the right to work in another Member State. This is because the freedom of movement rules, which include freedom of movement, are still in place while the UK is on the single market. Freedom of movement is likely to end on December 31 next year.

A full-time job in the European Union

For the same reason, British citizens will still be eligible for full-time positions in the EU after Britain leaves the Union.

Retirement in the European Union

British citizens (whether working or retired) retain in the European Union before the end of the transition period most of their rights as citizens of the European bloc for the rest of their lives as part of the agreement and the main rights that have not been negotiated yet include the annual lifting of the pension sent from the UK and the continued right to movement Within the European Union.

Go on study programs

About 17,000 British students have studied in a country of the European Union according to the data for 2017/2018, as most of the university places have been allocated for the year 2020. Indeed, many hopes that the study programs will continue after the withdrawal, but this depends on negotiations on the future relationship with the European Union.

Funding for scientific research

British citizens will still be able to apply for funding in the Horizon2020 programs during the transition period which are sources of infrastructure and environmental development in rural areas and many non-profit organizations seeking to help people work in poor areas.

Apply for arts funding

The European funding influx for creative areas of the European Union will continue to be available to British applications as IPortunus, a new EU mobility fund, provides artists an invitation to submit applications in 2020.

Nomination for the Literature Award

British writer Melissa Harrison won the UK European Literature Award in 2019 for her novel “Among the Barley” that explores the dangers of nationalism and xenophobia and the fund will remain open in 2020 for British citizens.

Cross-border health care opportunities

The EU citizens have the right to health care in any country of the European Union and are compensated for care abroad by this country in addition to emergency health care for tourists under the Ehic system.
