    WORK PERMITS - GENERAL INFORMATION

    Guidance for Employers

    Valid from 02/04/2007 to 18/11/2007


    This leaflet provides some background information on work permits and general immigration matters. This supersedes all previously issued guidance.


    Section 1 ?Overview

    There are six separate sets of work permit guidance notes (see part 1). You must ensure that all applications are made on the correct form, and that the work permitroute for which you are applying is appropriate forthe post you wish to fill. Should you wish to change the type of work permit for which you are applying after an application has been submitted,you should withdraw the initial application and submit a fresh application on the appropriate form for the correct type of work permit you require.If you chose to withdraw your application, you will be charged at the full cost, no refunds are available in these circumstances.

    The Business and Commercial arrangements allow employers in this country to recruit people from outside the EEA who are going to be filling a vacancy that may otherwise be filled by a ?resident worker? (see paragraph 2 for a definition).

    Who requires a work permit?
    Any non-EEA national seeking entry or permission to remain in the UK for the purpose of employment will normally require a work permit. There are, however a number of exceptions to this (see paragraph 7).
    If you have any doubts as to whether a non-EEA national whom you wish to employ requires a work permit or already has permission to work in the UK, you can contact the Border and Immigration Agency?s (BIA) Employer Helpline on 0845 010 6677. You should be aware that Section 8 of the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 makes it a criminal offence to employ a person aged 16 or over who is subject to immigration control unless:
    ? that person has current and valid permission to be in the UK and that permission does not prevent them from taking the job in question; or
    ? the person comes into a category where such employment is otherwise allowed.


    More information about this offence, and the steps that employers should take to establish a defence against it, is set out in the Home Office?s document ?Prevention of Illegal Working: Guidance for Employers? which may be accessed on the Border and Immigration Agency website: http://www.bia.homeoffice.gov.uk/lawandpolicy/pre ventingillegalworking/.


    The following people do not need work permits:
    Spouses or civil partners, unmarried or same sex partners and dependant children under 18, of people who hold work permits, or who qualify under any of the above categories or those listed in paragraph 7 as long as the endorsement in their passport places no restriction on their employment here.

    Under the Immigration Rules a non-EEA national seeking entry for the purposes of employment does not require a work permit if they qualify under one of the following immigration categories and they have obtained prior entry clearance at a British Diplomatic Post abroad, where necessary:
    (a) those coming to the UK to set up a new business or to take over or join an existing business as a partner or director, or as a sole trader.
    (b) those receiving training in techniques and work practices used in the UK, providing that the training is confined to observation, familiarisation and classroom instruction only.
    (c) ministers of religion, missionaries, visiting religious workers, religious workers in a non pastoral role and members of religious orders
    (d) representatives of overseas newspapers, news agencies and broadcasting organisations.
    (e) private servants in diplomatic households.
    (f) representatives of overseas firms who are seeking to establish a UK branch or subsidiary.
    (g) teachers and language assistants under approved exchange schemes.
    (h) employees of an overseas Government coming to do a job for their Government or international organisation of which the UK is a member.
    (i) seamen under contract to join a ship due to leave British waters on an international voyage.
    (j) senior operational ground staff of overseas-owned airlines based at international airports.
    (k) seasonal workers at agricultural camps under approved schemes.
    (l) doctors and dentists who are a graduate from a UK recognised medical or dental school and who are going on to undertake a 2 year Foundation Programme
    (m) entertainers and sportspeople participating in benefit matches and charity events for which there is no fee, or in international competitions.
    (n) entertainers and sportspeople attending trials and auditions which do not involve a performance to a fee-paying audience. (Paid rehearsals do require a work permit).
    (o) entertainers participating at certain festivals (a list is available from the work permits part of the website: www.workingintheuk.gov.uk ).
    (p) Working Holidaymakers undertaking employment as an incidental part of their holiday.
    (q) those coming to the UK under the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme.
    (r) Innovators.
    (s) Investors.
    (t) Au Pairs.
    (u) Domestic Workers.
    (v) Writers, Composers and Artists.
    (w) Kirtani performers.


    Further information on these categories can be found on UK Visas? website: www.ukvisas.gov.uk or on the Home Office?s website: www.bia.homeoffice.gov.uk

    Valid from 02/04/2007 to 18/11/2007

    Section 3 ? Immigration

    Visas and Entry Clearance
    Work permit holders who are either a British National (Overseas), a British Overseas Territories Citizen, a British Overseas Citizen, a British Protected Person or a person who under the British Nationality Act 1981 is a British subject are not required to gain entry clearance. However, individuals who fall into the above categories will only be granted 6 months leave to enter and will therefore need to apply for a new work permit and leave to remain before this 6 month period has elapsed.

    Work permit holders who are non-EEA nationals (including non-visa nationals) who wish to come to the UK for more than 6 months must obtain entry clearance before travelling. If clearance is granted it will normally be for the full period of their stay as stated on the work permit.

    The spouse or civil partner, unmarried or same sex partner and children of a work permit holder may be admitted to the UK as dependants. The spouse or civil partner, unmarried or same sex partner of a work permit holder will be given conditions of stay, which do not place any restrictions, other than those that would apply to a resident worker, on their taking employment or engaging in business. This normally applies when a dependant is granted more than 6 months leave. However, if a dependant is granted less than 6 months leave they will not normally be allowed to take up employment. Dependants over 18 years of age have to complete their own form and pay the appropriate fee.

    The exceptions to this are the dependants of Multiple Entry and Sectors Based Scheme work permit holders who, if they wish to accompany a work permit holder to the UK, must qualify for entry in their own right under another category of the Immigration Rules.

    A non-EEA national seeking entry to the UK as the dependant of a work permit holder must obtain prior entry clearance .

    How long is a work permit valid for?
    We issue work permits for a specific period beginning on the date the person is given leave to enter the UK. If they do not enter the UK within six months of the date we issue the permit, it will no longer be valid. If this happens, or you foresee it happening, please contact us for advice at the address given in paragraph 15. You may need to make a fresh application.

    We cannot issue copies of permits and can only normally issue a replacement if you return the original to us first as long as it has not been used.

    When the person is already in this country, we issue a letter of permission rather than a work permit. This will be sent to you before we have made a decision on the immigration aspects of the case, i.e. to decide whether the person?s conditions of stay may be varied from those originally granted on entry.

    If the employment for which the work permit was issued ends prematurely, or a person admitted as a work permit holder does not take up the employment for which the work permit was issued, the person may be deemed to no longer meet the requirement of the Immigration Rules under which they were admitted and action may be taken to curtail their stay, and the stay of any dependants, in the UK.

    Where employment ends, the conditions attached to any remaining leave to remain will not confer permission to remain for the purpose of seeking alternative employment. If the person has found alternative employment, Border and Immigration Agency may consider a work permit application from the new employer but may not grant further leave to remain in the UK unless it is satisfied that the individual has taken steps to find new employment as quickly as possible.

    WORK PERMITS - BUSINESS AND COMMERCIAL

    Guidance for Employers
    Valid from 02/04/2007 to 18/11/2007

    Business & Commercial (notes)

    This guidance note provides information on the criteria of the Business and Commercial work permit arrangements and advice on how to make an application. They are updated regularly, therefore, please read them before filling in the application form. This supersedes all previously issued guidance.

    Section 1 ? The Criteria

    Decisions on Business and Commercial work permit applications are made against the following criteria, whether:

    a) there is a UK-based employer; you can make a work permit application if you are a UK based employer and you need to employ a person to work in the UK. You should make a work permit application to employ a named person to do a specific job for you, normally on a full-time basis. The employee cannot use the work permit to take a different job or to work for a different employer.

    b) the individual is to be an employee of the UK employer;

    I. if you wish to employ a person, you will need to do so on a Class 1 National Insurance basis.
    II. whilst in the UK we expect the person to be your employee. There should be a contract of employment between you and the employee. The contract of employment may be requested by Border and Immigration Agency.
    III. if the person is being transferred from an overseas parent or subsidiary branch of
    your company or is being seconded to you from an overseas company, it may be appropriate for the overseas contract of employment to continue but it should nevertheless be clear that there is an employer/employee relationship between the UK-based company and the person.

    c) there must be a genuine vacancy for an employee in this country; The post must
    not have been created for the purpose of recruiting a particular person. We must also be satisfied that enough work exists for the person to undertake for the amount of hours and period that you have requested.

    d) the employer is responsible for the post;

    I. We will only issue a work permit where it is clear that you have a clearesponsibility for determining the duties and functions of the post. You maY apply for a work permit for a person who will be employed to provide services to a client under a contract, which may mean that the person will need to work at the client?s premises. Border and Immigration Agency will not issue a work permit where the employer is only supplying personnel.

    II. You will need to demonstrate that you are responsible for the delivery of a particular job, project or piece of work with which the vacancy is associated. If your application involves providing aservice to a client under a contract, please send us a copy of the contract between everyone involved.

    e) the gross pay and conditions of employment are equal or exceed those
    normally given to a ?resident worker? (see paragraph 2 for a definition) doing similar work;

    f) the employment complies with UK legislation and any requirements for registration or licensing necessary for the employment and you have ensured that you and your employee have obtained any necessary registration or licensing;

    g) the extent to which the potential employee has a significant shareholding (10% or above, see paragraph 79) or beneficial interest in the UK-based company or
    connected business (this may mean a work permit may not be issued);

    h)the skills, qualifications and experience needed to do the job meet specificrequirements;

    i) the person is suitably qualified or experienced to do the job on offer and whether there is a need for them to do the job on offer; and

    j) there are suitably qualified or experienced ?resident workers? available.

    If you have not applied for a work permit in the past five years you should send as much recent information as possible to establish that you are a UK-based employer, and that you are capable of offering a genuine vacancy. In all cases you must send evidence of registration with HM Revenue & Customs to pay PAYE and National Insurance. New employers need to send a copy of their NESI 8. Established employers need to provide either their P35 or a copy of their HM Revenue and Customs internet account book,

    We may also need to see other documents, including, where appropriate, those required by regulatory authorities or by UK legislation, such as: VAT returns, most recent company accounts, audited if possible, company incorporation, certificates or other registration or licenses, business plans, balance sheets, contracts detailing your business.

    All employees of UK based companies, regardless of whether they are paid overseas or in the UK, must be paid the National Minimum Wage (NMW). When considering if NMW is met, all the accommodation allowance can be added to the salary providing it is totally disposable, non-deductible and guaranteed to the overseas national (i.e. they are free to do with it as they wish). Provided NMW is met, all allowances will be considered in assessing the overall salary package against the going rate. Allowances must be guaranteed to the individual and where appropriate, similar to those normally paid to resident workers doing similar work.

    In addition:
    a) The employment must meet the Working Time Regulations (WTR). For further
    information on WTR you can telephone the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) on 08457 474747

    b) You, the UK-based employer, will be expected to operate PAYE and class 1
    National Insurance Contributions.

    To qualify for a Business and Commercial work permit the job must meet the following criteria:

    EITHER ? the job must require the following qualifications:
    a) a UK equivalent degree level qualification; or
    b) a Higher National Diploma (HND) level qualification which is relevant to the post on offer; or
    c) a HND level qualification, which is not relevant to the post on offer plus one year of relevant full time work experience at National/Scottish Vocational Qualification (N/SVQ) level 3 or above;

    OR the job must require the following skills:
    d) 3 years full time experience of using specialist skills acquired through doing the type of job for which the permit is sought. This should be at N/SVQ level 3 or above.
    Further information about N/SVQ levels are available on the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority website: http://www.qca.org.uk/ .

    There are two main types of application under the Business and Commercial work permit arrangements - Tier 1 and Tier 2. The WP1 application form has two distinct sections that relate to each type of application.


    Tier 1 applications

    Tier 1 applications involve a simplified procedure, which includes an exemption from conducting a recruitment search of the labour market within the EEA. Applications fall under Tier 1 in the following circumstances:

    a) Intra Company Transfers (ICT)

    b) Board level posts

    c) Inward investment - This category is for new posts that are essential to an inward investment project which is bringing jobs and money to the UK. It is for investment in the UK by overseas companies, not individuals. The smallest investment normally needed to qualify under this category is ?250,000.

    d) Shortage occupations - For some occupations listed we require an individual to have higher level qualifications and experience than those outlined in paragraph 12. You can get details of those occupations which are currently included in this category by phoning 0114 207 4074, or from the work permits part of the website: www.workingintheuk.gov.uk .

    e) Sponsored Researchers - This category is for Someone who has a job overseas, who is still being paid for that job, has come to the UK to undertake a period of research at an employer/host organisation and the funding for the research remains overseas. You may also wish to refer to the Home Office website http://www.bia.homeoffice.gov.uk/ as they may be able to enter the UK as either an Academic Visitor, Business Visitor or through the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme.


    Tier 2 applications

    You should fill in the Tier 2 section of the form if your application does not fall into one of the categories we have already mentioned.

    Evidence of experience and/or qualifications is required for Tier 2 applications .Please send us copies of the person?s academic or professional qualifications that show the person meets the skills criteria. If they are not in English, please send certified translations. Do not send originals. However, Border and Immigration Agency reserves the right to request originals and if necessary check their authenticity.

    Please send references from past employers on their headed notepaper that verify the person?s relevant work experience. They must give the start and finish dates, details of the work and any experience that makes the person qualified to do the job.

    Recruitment Search - You will need to show why you cannot fill the post with a ?resident worker? (see paragraph 2). In most cases you will also need to give details of your recruitment methods and give credible reasons why you did not employ a suitably qualified or experienced ?resident worker? or one who, with extra training, could do the job.

    Section 2 ? Other types of application and supplementary employment

    Multiple Entry Work Permits

    This type of permit can be applied for under any category of the Business and Commercial arrangements. It allows employees who are based overseas to enter the UK on a regular basis within the period of the permit to work for the same employer.

    Possession of this type of work permit means there is no need for their UK-based employer to obtain a fresh work permit every time they are required to work in this country.

    Multiple Entry Work Permits can be issued for a minimum of six months and a maximum of two years. Applications for this type of permit must be made whilst the person is out of the country.

    You cannot apply for an extension or a change of employment application; a fresh application must be submitted on a WP1 form if a further period is required (SR1 form for Sponsored Researchers) and the person must be out of the country whilst the application is made.

    If you want to apply for a Multiple Entry Work Permit you should apply on a WP1 form (SR1 form for Sponsored Researchers).

    If you want to apply for an extension to a work permit, or the person is otherwise already in the UK, you should apply before the person?s permission to stay in this country runs out. Please apply at least one month but no more than three months before this date.

    For extension applications we will normally have information about your organisation and the person, so we will not need company information, references or qualifications. However, please read the previous approval letter and send any information we have requested. If you do not provide this we may limit the period of extension.

    A recruitment search will not usually be required if the person is continuing in the same employment.

    If a work permit extension application has been submitted, the individual may continue working with you whilst this application is being considered provided they either:
    ? continue to have valid leave to remain; or
    ? have submitted a further leave to remain (FLR) application before their existing leave to remain expires.
    .
    You cannot apply for an extension to a Multiple Entry Work Permit.

    If you want to extend a work permit you should fill in the WP1X form (SR1 form for Sponsored Researchers) and state why and for how much longer you need to employ the person.

    If you are using the E-form application form, you should tick ?yes? to Question 8 on the WP1.

    If you want to employ a person currently in the UK, who already has a work permit in respect of a job with another employer or if you want the person to change jobs within your organisation you should apply to Border and Immigration Agency for permission.

    If the application involves a change to the duties and conditions of work from those on the previous work permit, a search of the resident labour market will normally be required unless the application can be dealt with under the tier 1 category (for example, if the new post is on the list of shortage occupations).

    You do not need to provide evidence of a recruitment search if we receive your application either before they leave their current employment or within 28 days of the persons last day of work with their previous employer, and providing they will be doing the same type of job. You must wait for our permission before the person can start working in their new role.

    For most change of employment applications we will already have details of the person, so you do not need to send evidence of their qualifications and experience. However where the individual is taking a post where the duties or the skills required are different to what they were previously approved, we may require further supporting evidence.

    If the person is currently on a Multiple Entry Work Permit, you will need to make a fresh application.

    If a work permit change of employment application has been approved, the individual must apply to vary their leave to remain (FLR) to cover their change of employment.

    For change of employment applications please use form WP1 (for Sponsored Researchers form SR1 or PD1 form for post graduate doctors and dentists). If completing an E-form application you should tick ?no? at question 8.

    If you wish to change the address at which you will employ the person or if the person changes their personal details, at any time during the validity of the work permit, then you should write to the Business Team who deal with your application. You will need to inform them of the intended change and provide the person?s worker reference number.

    Please do not send passports to the business team when notifying us of a technical change of employment. We only require a copy of the leave to remain stamp, which can be found in the person?s passport.

    If you do not inform us of such a change of address, then it is possible that Border and Immigration Agency, during a compliance check, will be unable to locate your company or the employee concerned. If this happens, we may revoke the work permit(s) concerned, and curtail the leave to remain in the UK of the work permit holder. This may lead to the work permit holder being removed from the UK by the UK Immigration Service.

    When a person?s employer is taken over by another employer, the new employer should write to the business team who deal with their applications providing full details, a copy of the person?s leave to remain stamp, which can be found in the person?s passport and quoting the worker?s reference number.

    A person who has a work permit and wishes to take work additional to that for which the permit was issued may do so without further permission from this department provided the work:
    ? is outside of their normal working hours;
    ? is no more than 20 hours per week;
    ? is in the same profession and at the same professional level for which the holder?s work permit was issued; and
    is not employed by a recruitment agency, employment agency or similar business to provide personnel to a client

    The work permit holder is not allowed to enter self-employment, set-up a business or join another business as a director or partner without obtaining further permission from the Home Office Multiple Entry Work Permit holders are not permitted to take supplementary employment.

    Border and Immigration Agency reserves the right to contact the employer directly to verify details. If full contact details are not provided by you or your representative when requested by us, we may refuse the application.

    In some cases, if we have approved your work permit, we may also carry out a ?compliance check? to ensure the ongoing validity of the work permit. The purpose of the compliance check is to make sure that the information given on the work permit application is a true reflection of the employment being offered.

    We may make these checks at any time during the application process or during the validity of a work permit.
    The Compliance Team can be contacted at:
    Border and Immigration Agency
    Compliance Team
    Managed Migration Directorate
    Home Office
    Box 3468
    Sheffield
    S3 8WA

    An employer who uses deception to obtain a work permit may be committing a criminal offence. Managed Migration Directorate?s Intelligence Team deal with information in respect of abuse of the work permit arrangements, carry out investigations and, if appropriate, inform the relevant authorities of its findings.

    Under the current Immigration Rules, overseas nationals may apply to switch in to work permit employment without leaving the UK provided they satisfy the work permit criteria and have existing leave as:
    ? A student who has obtained a degree level qualification on a UK recognised degree level course; or
    ? A post graduate doctor or dentist or trainee
    general practitioner who holds a valid work
    permit approval for employment as a doctor
    or dentist; or
    ? An overseas national here to undertake the
    PLAB test, a clinical attachment or a dental
    observation post who holds a valid work
    permit approval for employment as a doctor
    or dentist; or
    ? A student nurse, overseas qualified nurse and midwife who holds a valid work permit approval for employment as a nurse; or
    ? A Working Holiday Maker who has been in
    the UK for more than twelve months who
    holds a valid work permit approval for an
    occupation listed on the Border and
    Immigration Agency shortage occupation
    list, at the time of issue; or
    ? An overseas national on the Highly Skilled
    Migrant Programme; or
    ? An Innovator; or
    ? An overseas national on a Science and
    Engineering Graduate Scheme; or
    ? A participant of the Fresh Talent Working in
    Scotland scheme who holds a valid work
    permit approval for employment in
    Scotland.

    People who qualified overseas in some professions may need to do conversion/adaptation training or supervised practice to meet UK statutory requirements to work here.

    If you need to fill a vacancy by employing a person who must do conversion training, you should apply for a permit on application form WP1 under the Business and Commercial criteria.

    If you are applying for a person who is additional to your normal staffing, and they are solely doing training with you to obtain registration or a qualification after which they will return overseas, you should apply under the Training and Work Experience Scheme on application form WP1. See the Training and Work Experience Guidance Notes for further details.
    People who qualified overseas as a nurse or midwife will be required to complete a period of protected learning or a period of supervised practice/adaptation training to meet UK statutory requirements to work here.

    If the employment for which the work permit was issued ends prematurely, or a person admitted as a work permit holder does not take up the employment for which the work permit was issued, the person may be deemed to no longer meet the requirement of the Immigration Rules under which they were admitted and action may be taken to curtail their stay, and the stay of any dependants, in the UK.

    The decision letter we send to you will explain the result of our consideration of your application. If we cannot approve your application the letter will explain why, and if appropriate give details of how to request reconsideration of the decision.

    If our letter informs you that the information did not meet our criteria, and you wish to re-apply with further information, please complete either a WP1, SR1, PD1, MTI1or a WP1X form and include the appropriate payment. You should include further evidence to support your application including, but not restricted to, the issues raised in our letter.

    The Reviews Team will consider the grounds of refusal provided in respect of your initial work permit application and also undertake a full review of all other elements of the work permit decision.

    Before making a decision we may contact the employer/representative for further information to clarify/support the evidence provided with the initial work permit application.

    Where we identify further grounds for refusal the decision to maintain refusal of an application will stand even when the original ground for refusal has been overturned.

    The Reviews Team will only accept two reviews per original application refused. If your initial review is unsuccessful, you will only be able to seek one further review of the original application. Any further requests for a review received for the same original application will be returned to you. If you wish to proceed with the application, please complete a fresh application form, enclosing the appropriate fee.
