Just business as usual I reckon, both for the Brits & the Turks.

Re: brexit

Well we could have the situation where Turkey is an EU member and UK citizens are not which probably mean changes would happen but would not materially impact on the ease or lack of ease of getting a residents permit.

Whereas if we remain in and Turkey joins then it would make it much easier for UK citizens to live in Turkey. Another of the many valid reasons for voting to stay in. Waiting to hear a reason to leave EU that has any validity.

Do you mean Turks living in the UK on benefits or UK citizens on benefits living in Turkey? Because if you mean the later then a lot of retired UK nationals relying on their state pension to support or partially support themselves will be forced home.

Re: brexit

As Kibris has rightly stated , a UK pension is NOT a benefit it is a RIGHT , and Paid for by years and years of paying in National insurance stamps for it
Why people seem to think a PENSION is a BENEFIT eludes me

despite recent discussion on this issue I think that in a strict legal sense the state pension is still classed as a benefit.

Re: brexit

I fail to see any benefit in being British, born and bred. Once out of the country for a few months suddenly one becomes an immigrant and if having to go back there to live, gets less help than other migrants from abroad who have never paid a penny into the state system. I object strongly to being classed as am immigrant in my country of birth!
As for the pension, it has been paid into and earned over so many years and is an entitlement, not a benefit. What happens to expats in or out of the EU remains to be seen.

Re: brexit

I'm a bit confused, if I am out of the country for a few months, do I lose my citizenship, passport etc.?
If so, why would I be treated less than any other non citizen immigrant?
If not can someone really become a second class immigrant into a country that they already hold a passport for?

I'm genuinely curious as we lived in Turkey for many years, returning recently and had no problems at all.
