There are two ways for you to be able to demonstrate a right to work unless you have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, or have applied to the EU settlement scheme and are waiting for a decision, for which a share code or online is the only way for you to prove the right to work.
All original documents must be provided in person.
You can prove your right to work by providing:
- date of birth
- right to work share code
Currently, the online service supports checks in respect of those who hold:
- a biometric residence permit
- a biometric residence card
- status issued under the EU Settlement Scheme
- a digital Certificate of Application to the EU Settlement Scheme issued on or before 30 June 2021
- status issued under the points-based immigration system
- British National Overseas (BNO) visa
- Frontier workers permit
Lists of acceptable documents for right to work checks
The documents we are able to accept to demonstrate the right to work are listed below and set out in two lists - List A and List B.
You must bring the original document or documents to your interview in order to comply with our right to work policy.
List A contains the range of documents which you may accept for a person who has a permanent right to work in the UK. If you conduct the right to work checks correctly before employment begins, you will establish a continuous right to work for the duration of that person’s employment with you. You do not have to conduct any further checks.
