– residence card of a family member of a European Union citizen; You and your family members are exempt from the ETIAS and Visas requirements upon entry to France. The new biometric residence card will be available no later than January 1, 2021. Holders of a special residence permit can register in their commune as beneficiaries of the withdrawal agreement. In this regard, the Protocol Directorate can confirm that the EU has declared that British nationals who are staff members of international organisations in an EU member state are workers, in accordance with Article 45 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. As such, they are beneficiaries of the withdrawal agreement if they have stayed in that Member State before the end of the transitional period. This means that international civil servants who waive their special residence permit and wish to register with their commune of residence are entitled to what is called the M card, which attests to his status as a beneficiary of the withdrawal agreement. Staff members of international organisations with special residence permits and legally residing in Belgium before the end of the transition period remain considered to be under the withdrawal agreement after the end of the transition period. This means that workers of international organisations residing in Belgium at the end of the transition period with a special residence permit are covered by the withdrawal agreement and may, under certain conditions, register at any time under their residence under the status of beneficiary (including after the transition period), under certain conditions. The main reason for these conditions is that a potential beneficiary must obtain the cancellation of his special residence permit before registering as a beneficiary of the withdrawal contract with the municipality and that this registration as a beneficiary must take place within three months of the abolition of the special residence permit. It is also important to note that after five years of a P or S permanent residence permit, British nationals who are beneficiaries of the withdrawal agreement are entitled to an M card granting permanent residence. Staff members of international organizations residing in Belgium before the end of the transitional period, but who were not registered in the protocol under a special residence permit, have the opportunity to prove their stay in Belgium in time and the staff of international organizations by other means (for example.
B contract). However, holders of a special residence permit who wish to register with their community of residence while still employed by their international organization should bear in mind that this may affect their privileges and immunities. Under certain agreements of the host country, the organization, not the staff itself, may waive the privileges of its agents; this waiver must always be explicit. 48.We welcome the proposal for a common-size residence card for UK nationals, so that they can prove that their rights are covered by the withdrawal agreement and that the card indicates whether the holder has acquired permanent residence.
