Note: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia are commonly referred to as the A8 member states.

This scheme came to an end on 30 April 2011 and from 1 May 2011 nationals from the A8 member states working in the UK are no longer required to register their employment with the Home Office.

The document must be issued before the Croatian national starts work.

Note: Bulgaria and Romania are commonly referred to as the A2 member states. Until 31 December 2013, unless exempt from registration, nationals from these member states are required to register their employment in the UK with the Home Office Worker Authorisation Scheme (WAS).
