On 10 April 2019, the European Council unanimously extended the deadline for withdrawal under Article 50 until 31 October 2019.

The aim is to give UK policymakers more time to create clarity on important questions concerning adoption of the Withdrawal Agreement and the nature of the future relationship. The German Government has made comprehensive preparations in good time for all withdrawal scenarios, irrespective of when the UK leaves the EU.

The UK’s withdrawal from the EU requires a high level of legal and political disengagement at European level and in the Member States. Here you will find an overview of the measures that the German Government has put in place.

Brexit may have an impact on people’s plans for their personal and professional lives, particularly in the event that there is no deal.

The German Government has undertaken a host of measures at various levels for this case in order to cushion the possible effects as much as possible.
