Ai uitat de ultimele paragrafe, dar nu-i bai, punem aici sa citeasca si altii care vor la UKBA In October 2004, elements of the nationality and immigration history checks were extended on the instruction of the then Permanent Secretary. Employment by the UK Border Agency is limited solely to British or Commonwealth Citizens or EEA nationals who have lived in the UK continuously for the past three years and who have no restriction on their stay in the United Kingdom. Anyone who applies for UK Border Agency (UKBA) vacancies would need to meet the relevant eligibility criteria in respect of the nationality and residency requirements as advertised and, in addition, would need to pass the selection process and appropriate level of security clearance required for the post. For posts within UKBA, candidates must be: a British citizen;a national of a state in the European Economic Area; ora Commonwealth citizen with no employment restriction or time limit on their stay in the UK. In addition, candidates should normally have lived in the UK continuously for the past three years before applying. Some posts are reserved (including immigration officers and assistant immigration officers) and are open only to UK nationals (under the terms of the 1996 Nationality Act, unless in a civil service post on or before 31 May 1996). These require candidates to be: a British citizen;a British subject under Part IV of the British Nationality Act 1981 having the right of abode in the UK; and/ora British Dependent Territories citizen acquiring citizenship from a connection with Gibraltar. In addition, candidates should normally have lived in the UK continuously for the past five years before applying.
