Immigration & Eligibility to Work Policy & Guidance
The Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 was revised by the Government and came into force on 29 February 2008. As a result of this, Durham University, as an employer, has a legal responsibility to prevent illegal working and therefore must check that all employees are entitled to work in the United Kingdom (UK).
The following pages aim to provide practical guidance for staff and departments regarding immigration and eligibility to work as we realise this can be a complex topic. The guidance provides information including links to the Home Office (UKVA) website.
The University of Durham makes every effort to ensure that the information published on this page is accurate. However, the University cannot guarantee the information may not be altered owing to circumstances beyond the University’s reasonable control. Such circumstances include (but are not limited to) change in Government policy, or change of law. Any changes will be incorporated into the University’s website as early as possible.
