THOUSANDS of ex-pat Brits face hefty fees to live in Europe after Brexit – despite their citizens being allowed to stay here for free.

Theresa May scrapped the £65 charge EU nationals would have faced to continue staying in the UK after May 29.

With more than three million Europeans living here, the gesture cost British taxpayers about £200million.

But some EU countries have refused to return the compliment, The Sun on Sunday can reveal.

Spain, home to 310,000 Brits, is considering a €12 (£10.40) registration fee.

Holland will charge UK nationals the same fee for a new residence permit as they charge EU citizens – £49.50 for adults and £26 for under-18s.


Cyprus has confirmed it will impose a charge.

Bulgaria is to charge the equivalent to £8 to register – a standard fee imposed on all locals and EU citizens.

One Brexiteer minister blasted yesterday: “It just goes to show that in negotiations with the EU, the more you give, the less you receive in return.”
