UK Border Agency logo

This UK Border Control guide should be used by employers, including anyone in their organisation who is delegated to conduct right to work checks, in order to become familiar with the documents they are checking. In this guidance employers are referred to as ‘you, and the Home Office as ‘we’.
The Guide provides information about the documents which are acceptable for you to check to establish someone’s right to work, provides examples of these documents and an explanation of relevant features. It also provides links to other useful sources of information on documents.
