In addition to an agreement on goods, the Uk wants an agreement on services that make up a large part of its economy. This is not part of the discussions, but separate agreements on issues such as the banking system are still possible. UK nationals and EU citizens, family members of the United Kingdom or EU citizens and family members who are not from these two countries retain the right to stay in the host Member State (Article 13). The host Member State must not restrict or prevent persons from obtaining, retaining or losing the right of residence (Article 13). Persons with valid documents [necessary clarification] will not need an entry and exit visa or identical formalities and would not be allowed to enter or enter the host state without complications (Article 14). In the event that the host state “requires an entry visa for family members who join EU citizens or UK nationals after the end of the transitional period,” the host state is required to issue the visas required free of charge through an expedited procedure in appropriate institutions (Article 14). The agreement also covers the issuance of indeterminate residence permits during and after the transition period, as well as their restrictions. In addition, the rights of salaried and self-employed workers will be clarified and recognition and identification of professional qualifications will be made possible. According to the British in Europe lobby group (which represents British citizens residing in EU countries) in June 2020, “up to 23 EU Member States had still implemented systems to document the future rights of the 1.2 million British citizens already living on the continent who are unaware of their future rights and obligations.”  “The UK introduced its [registration] system for EU citizens last March , in which more than 3.3 million people were granted pre-regulated or regulated status after Brexit,” he said.  While free trade agreements are supposed to boost trade, too many cheap imports could threaten a country`s producers, which could affect employment. On 23 October, the UK government signed a new trade agreement with Japan, which means that 99% of UK exports will be tariff-free. After an unprecedented vote on 4 December 2018, MEPs ruled that the UK government was not respecting Parliament because it refused to give Parliament full legal advice on the consequences of its proposed withdrawal terms.  The focus of the consultation was on the legal effect of the “backstop” agreement for Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom with regard to the CUSTOMS border between the EU and the United Kingdom and its impact on the Good Friday agreement that led to the end of the unrest in Northern Ireland, including whether , according to the proposals, the UK would be certain that it would be able to leave the EU in a practical sense.
