Most EU member states have passed legislation or intend to, aimed at safeguarding the rights of Britons living there. However certain countries are more generous and more accommodating than others. Here's a look at how they square up. From a 10-year work and residence permit to stringent income criteria, the packages of rights on offer from EU27 member states to mitigate a no-deal Brexit for resident UK nationals vary immensely from country to country. Duration of no-deal residence permits By far the most generous is Malta's. "The Maltese authorities will give a 10 year status to UK nationals who are resident in Malta on 29th March 2019.
