Use this service to find out:

  • which types of document give someone the right to work in the UK
  • what a right to work check involves for each of them

Because of coronavirus, there are temporary changes to the way you can check documents. You can ask for documents digitally and make checks on a video call instead of in person.

Use a different service to check a job applicant’s right to work if they’ve given you their share code. You will not need to check their documents as well.
