Validity of passports and travel documents
From 16 May 2014, the Home Office changed the documentation which can be accepted to evidence a persons right to work in the UK. All non-EEA documentation must be current which includes:
- Biometric Residence Permit (BRP);
- Immigration status document;
- Residence Card (including Accession Residence Cards and Derivative Residence Cards)
UK Immigration endorsements in an expired passport are not acceptable. Individuals are required to transfer their visa to a new passport (if applying outside of the UK) or apply for a Biometric Immigration Document. https://www.gov.uk/transfer-visa
Individuals must not commence employment until acceptable documentation is produced.
