Finland has prepared for the eventuality of a no-deal Brexit by drafting a special act.

Under the act, British citizens living in Finland could continue to stay in the country until the end of 2020, but only if they have registered their right of residence as EU citizens before the final withdrawal date. EU leaders agreed in April to extend the deadline for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the EU until 31 October 2019.
