  1. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

      According to the German government website this is indeed the case, obviously provided that the Withdrawal Agreement passes into law and we enter the transition period.   "Essentially, under German law the United Kingdom will continue to be treated like an EU member state during the transition period. The citizenship regulations will also remain unchanged until the end of 2020: British citizens applying for German citizenship during this period will be entitled to retain their British passport, and vice versa – even if a final decision on the application is not taken until after the end of the transition period."   https://www.bundesregierung.de/breg-de/themen/brexit/eu-states-agree-on-article-50-extension-1686144   I believe the basis for this is Section 3 of this Act passed by the German government: https://www.bgbl.de/xaver/bgbl/text.xav?SID=&tf=xaver.component.Text_0&tocf=&qmf=&hlf=xaver.component.Hitlist_0&bk=bgbl&start=%2F%2F*%5B%40node_id%3D%27355057%27%5D&skin=pdf&tlevel=-2&nohist=1
