Around 70 Czechs living in Great Britain have asked for Czech citizenship as a result of fears over their status under Brexit, according to the Czech embassy in London. Most of the applications from the Czech emigrants to Britain between 1948 and 1968 and their descendants. They have an automatic right to Czech citizenship if requested even if they do not live there. Many of the applicants apparently fear difficulties over obtaining long term residency in Britain once it is no longer part of the European Union. Britain voted to withdraw from the EU in a referendum last June.
