Here's where to post about the bureaucracy attached to immigrating to/living in France.

What happens to UK expats if the UK leaves the EU?

gozomark has just asked this question on the Malta forum.

The short answer in the meantime, of course, is: "No-one knows". It would all depend on the terms of Britain's exit from the EU. But it's not hard to imagine that — as Mark suggests — the answer will depend at least partly on the individual British expat's status as an immigrant, with more established immigrants getting more favourable treatment than less established (and even illegal) ones.

With an estimated 330,000 Britons living in France, it's not hard to see that there's a lot riding on the outcome. Are there any particularly French angles to the issue that put Brits in France in a different situation from their counterparts in, say, Spain, Bulgaria or Malta?
