1 March 2023

We are writing to inform you that the ‘Employer’s guide to right to work checks’ available on GOV.UK has been updated:

The most significant updates relate to:

  • clarification for employers on the use of Identity Document Validation Technology (IDVT) and Identity Service Providers (IDSPs) to support manual document-based and Home Office online checking service right to work checks.
  • the use of “Reusable Identities” for checks involving the use of IDSPs (Annex C, Appendix A).
  • end of the COVID-19 temporary adjusted checks on 30 September 2022.
  • changes to enable some individuals with an outstanding, in-time application for permission to stay in the UK, or an appeal, or Administrative Review (3C leave) to prove their right to work using the Home Office online checking service. For more information, please refer to this factsheet
  • confirmation that Re-Admission to the UK (RUK) endorsements are an acceptable document for the purposes of right to work checks (List A, no. 4).
  • information on sponsored work and student categories (Annex B).
  • information on short-dated Biometric Residence Permits (BRPs).
  • the ‘Employment of Ukraine nationals’ annex is now solely contained within guidance under Annex D.

We appreciate your support in communicating this message to employers and their representative bodies through your relevant channels and networks.
