View and prove your immigration status: get a share code

If you have been told you can view your immigration status online you can use this service to:

  • get a ‘share code’ to prove your status to others, for example employers
  • update personal details in your UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) account, for example your passport number or email address
  • check what rights you have in the UK, for example the right to work, rent or claim benefits

Who can use this service

You can only use this service if you have a UKVI account.

You’ll have a UKVI account if you:

  • applied to the EU Settlement Scheme
  • applied for a visa and used the UK Immigration: ID Check app

If you do not have a UKVI account

There are different services to prove your right to work to an employer and to prove your right to rent to a landlord.

You will not have a UKVI account if you went to a Visa Application Centre (VAC) or Service Support Centre (SSC) to prove your identity when applying for a visa.
