Welcome to the University's webpages on staff and visitor immigration to the UK


Latest news

Physical immigration documents will be replaced by the end of 2024 with a digital proof of immigration status, known as an eVisa. This will affect anyone who currently holds a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP), Biometric Residence Card (BRC), or any other paper document to evidence their rights in the UK.

Please see our webpage to find out what action you need to take.

You can view previous news announcements, and subscribe for future updates if you wish, on our Immigration News page.


These pages contain information for new staff/visitors on the various immigration routes which may be available.

They also provide guidance on UK immigration law relating to employees, workers and visitors to departments/institutions. They aim to:

  • help ensure that new staff have the right to work in the UK before they commence work
  • guide you through the processes to follow when appointing someone who needs to obtain right to work through the UK immigration system
  • make you aware of the duties that need to be met throughout the employment/visit of a sponsored individual.

Following this guidance will help departments/institutions to stay within immigration law and will allow appointments to be made more smoothly.

Please visit our Forms, templates and webinars page to watch our webinars which provide an oversight of the critical areas of immigration within the University (Raven login required).

If you are in any doubt about any aspect of UK immigration as it relates to recruitment or right to work, please contact the Compliance Team for further assistance before proceeding.
