An initiative has been launched to get the EU Commission to consider the idea of issuing EU passports to UK citizens who want them to ensure their rights to the freedom of movement in the EU after the UK leaves.
Though only EU member states have the ability to confer citizenship, the European Commission has a limited ability to issue EU passports under regulation 1417/2013. This power is currently only used for certain diplomats and officials but can be extended “on exceptional basis and upon due motivation, to special applicants”.
This is another shot at the moon but I urge anyone who wants this to sign it and tell your friends/family about it! A million signatures are needed to get this in front of the EU Commission.
