About Remain in France Together - RIFT
Welcome to Remain In France Together - RIFT
We provide information about residency and citizens’ rights for UK citizens who established residency in France prior to the 31st December 2020, and for their family members who plan to join them after that date.
Please note we do not provide information relating to moving to France after 1 January 2021 as a Third Country National (TCN). Our information relates only to those UK citizens whose situation affords them the protection of the Withdrawal Agreement between the UK and the EU.
Who are RIFT?
RIFT is a pro-European group, set up after the referendum in June 2016; our closed RIFT CR Facebook group has over 22,000 members. Over the last 4 ½ years we have helped those already living in France and those planning a move to France, through the sharing of information and the first-hand experiences of our members. Since 2016 we have worked to protect your right to remain living in France and will continue to do so.
RIFT is led by a team, currently comprising: Justine Wallington, Anne Berrurier, James Brannan, Alison Wyld, Suzanne Ferrall, Kim Cranstoun and Claire Phillips. All members of the team are volunteers.
The RIFT team, like many of our members, supported the Remain campaign and joined millions of others in demonstrating their opposition to Brexit.
Our group, RIFT Working Across Borders, is specifically for those who live in France but work in other EU countries or the UK.
We have several regional groups that offer support & information specific to their region.
If you’re looking to exchange your UK driving licence for a French one, we recommend the Applying for a French Driving Licence group
