Check if a document allows someone to work in the UK
You can use this tool to find out:
- which types of document give someone the right to work in the UK
- what a right to work check involves for each of them
Because of coronavirus (COVID-19), there are temporary changes to the way you can check documents. You can ask for documents digitally and make checks on a video call instead of in person.
If an applicant has given you their right to work share code you can use a different service to view a job applicant's right to work details. You will not need to check their documents as well.
