Vetting: EU Nationals

Question for Home Office

UIN HL10456, tabled on 17 November 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to publish guidance to employers on the obligation to conduct right to work checks of EU nationals once the transition period for the UK's departure from the EU has ended.

Right to work checks for EEA citizens will not change until after 30 June 2021. Until then, EEA citizens can use their passport or national identity card to evidence their right to work. Alternatively, those with status under the EU Settlement Scheme or the new points-based immigration system may evidence their right to work using the Home Office online checking service if they choose to do so.

Updated advice on right to work checks after the grace period ends on 30 June 2021 will be published in due course.

Further advice on employing EEA citizens in the UK can be found on GOV.UK:
