A new picture shows workmen taking away the poles just a couple of weeks after the art work was apparently covered up.
Twitter user @Hironious saw the work being done and commented: "Something happening to the Dover #eu #banksy again this morning... Restoration perhaps?"
The mural, symbolising Britain leaving the EU, first appeared suddenly on the flank of Dover's former Castle Amusements building in Townwall Street on May 7, 2017.
It showed a man on a ladder chipping away at one of the 12 stars representing European Union ideals such as unity.
The street artist's work was strategically placed on the A20 where it could be clearly seen by traffic heading for Dover Eastern Docks to sail for mainland Europe.
But on Sunday, August 25 this year the mural vanished, appearing to be covered by white paint and the scaffolding over it.
The Banksy disappeared last month
It's disappearance prompted the town's MP Charlie Elphicke to speak out and he said Historic England should "hang their heads in shame" for not protecting the artwork.
The artwork, a Brexit-themed piece was valued at £1million in July.
Banksy confirmed huge mural, which depicted a workman removing one of the stars on the European Union flag, in May 2017.
