Ambassador calls for Brits to register before Brexit
Maurice sent a link – thank you – to the Portugal News, and reports that the British Ambassador to Portugal, Chris Sainty, has this week launched a renewed appeal for British living in Portugal to register with local authorities to avoid potential heartache in the future.
In an interview this week with the newspaper before addressing several hundred members of the British community in Lagos and São Brás de Alportel, Ambassador Sainty explained that a “large part of my job as Ambassador has revolved around our departure from the EU and the impact of Brexit here in Portugal”.
“The good news in Portugal is that the government here has for long said, provided rights of Portuguese nationals living in the UK are protected, and they will be, UK nationals in Portugal will enjoy reciprocal protection”, explained the Ambassador.
