British ambassador to Hungary: Nothing will change for Hungarians living in the UK after Brexit

After January 31, the ambassador said Hungarians can continue to freely travel to the UK until the end of 2020 and work or study there.

British ambassador to Hungary, Iain Lindsay has said nothing will change for Hungarians living in the United Kingdom after it leaves the European Union on January 31.

After the Brexit cut off date, the ambassador said Hungarians can continue to freely travel to the UK until the end of 2020 and work or study there.

Lindsay said that when a country becomes an EU member state, it loses an element of its sovereignty, adding that “we are regaining that sovereignty and want to take the opportunity to renew and strengthen our bilateral relations with Hungary among others”.

The ambassador noted that on February 1, Britain will become Hungary’s biggest non-EU trading partner and the country wants to strengthen bilateral relations. He added that the UK has the biggest Hungarian-born population outside the Carpathian Basin and is the second or third largest destination for Hungarian students.
