Working in the UK - Can I Work in the UK?

The rules for whether foreign nationals can work in the UK change regularly, so please check with the Home Office to find out if you qualify to work here.

On their website, the Home Office has clear rules for two groups of immigrants:

  • European National Migrants: This section is for nationals of countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland. It explains how they and members of their families (whether or not they are EEA or Swiss nationals themselves) can come to, live in and work in the UK.
  • Non-European Migrants: If you are not an EEA or Swiss national, or the family member of an EEA or Swiss national, you should read this Visas and immigration section to find out how you can apply to come here. Each section describes the immigration categories for European and non-European migrants who want to work in the UK. Each category has different requirements, so you should read the requirements for your chosen category before you apply for a visa. Most of the work-based categories are part of the UK's points-based system for immigration. If you want to visit the UK for a short time as a businessperson, sportsperson or entertainer, you may be able to come here as a visitor. The Visiting the UK section contains more information.

What if I Don't Qualify for a UK Work Visa?

Please be mindful that UK employers face large financial penalties if they are found employing migrant workers who are illegally here in the UK, so get your paperwork in order. If you attempt to work in the UK without the correct visas you will only be employed by cash in hand employers who pay less than the legal minimum wage and you will risk deportation if you are caught. So, if you want to come to the UK to give your family a better lifestyle, you will be sorely disappointed if you end up living in one room, or on the streets. That defeats the objective. Visit the Home Office website and get your paperwork in order.
