  8. Good evening everyone     After spending the whole evening googling and reading various forums it was somehow inevitable that I should end up here on TT, as it’s the forum which saved me some 7 years ago.   I’ve been living in Germany for 8 years, have a bf of 2 years, no kids and will start new job in 2 weeks.   2 years ago my Grandad died, he was the first Grandparent to pass, - (I’ve always been thankful to have had “full sets” of Grandparents on both sides) and since then I’ve had thoughts of returning home. The first fleeting thoughts have since taken up strong root and I’m now seriously considering it. I’ve never really felt settled here, none of my friends are German (I don’t have many of them anyway as i’ve moved around a lot) and I kinda feel like I only stayed the last few years because it was easier, and that if it weren’t for my boyfriend I’d already be back where I feel I belong.   My brother, however, says I’m living in the past and should be careful as moving and visiting isn’t the same (d’uh!) People have moved on and things aren’t like before.    I’m so very afraid I’ll move back and then regret it though, and Brexit seems to make everything so uncertain.    On nationality: i could get the german Citizenship as I fulfill requirements.  I could get Irish Citizenship by descent   I’m not really sure what my question is here, just need to hear from others who know what I’m going through I think.   Have any you considered moving back, either due to Brexit or homesickness (family getting old etc) or actually moved back ? Do you have dual-nationally? Should I just wait & see what happens next year or strike while I can before I get bogged down again?    Any thoughts and experiences will be much appreciated!    Thanks  
  9. One of the 28 "fear factor" updates released today is regarding driving licences. In the event of No Deal our licences won't allow us to drive in Germany as they do today but German licence holders will happily drive in UK. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/driving-in-the-eu-if-theres-no-brexit-deal/driving-in-the-eu-if-theres-no-brexit-deal   Did anyone exchange their UK licence for a German one either as part of Brexit prep or in general?   What is the process? Can you it online / via post with a form and sending you UK licence or is their some crazy series of tests and mountain's of paperwork needed?
  10. Hi everyone,   British in Germany is holding an Infoabend at Freundenzimmer in Kreuzberg (Mehringdamm 61) on 31st August 2018. It starts at 7pm and is followed by a party from 9pm (€3 plus booking fee in advance, €5 on the door which will help cover costs). It’s a good way for Brits in Berlin to find out about what’s happening with citizens rights in the Brexit negotiations (before then completely forgetting about the stress of Brexit with one or two of your favourite tipple).   More details can be found here: https://britishingermany.org/2018/08/16/dont-go-brexit-my-heart-british-in-germany-infoabend-and-party/   Hope to see many of you there!   Matt

  13. So there is agreement "in principle" that UK citizens (subjects, actually, but still...) will keep the right to stay after Brexit:   https://www.gov.uk/guidance/advice-for-british-nationals-travelling-and-living-in-europe   No mention from the UK of any contingency plan if we crash out with no deal at all.   What should we expect? Try and get a visa if we haven't got our German citizenship by then? What kind of visa would be appropriate?
  14. There has been talk that *maybe* there will be some kind of card for brits in eeu27 that will be valid thru all member states. Its very vague, and it sounds a bit like a souped-up Niederlassungserlaubnis card - Im sure theyll take inspiration from the Germans on this.   Anyway. For those of you non-Brits who DO have a Niederlassungserlaubnis card, in what situations do you present it?    Can you for example present it at eu border points? Or is that only AFTER you have presented your passport?
