We are required by law to carry out right to work checks on all our staff before you start working at King’s, regardless of your immigration status or nationality. The right-to-work check is also mandatory when an employee re-joins King’s, their visa or Positive Verification Notice expires.
The immigration rules place potential workers in two categories: those requiring a work permit or visa to work in the UK; and those not.
If you do not have the automatic right to work in the UK, you must provide evidence that you have been granted a suitable visa before you can start employment.
Kings College London adapts the list of accepted documents published by the Home Office.
For us to successfully carry out the right to work check, it is imperative that you provide the original documents from either List A or B. There is more information about visas on the UK Government webpages.
If you don't currently hold any immigration permission to work in the UK, you’ll need to apply for a UK visa or work permit. Detailed information, as well as an array of visa options, can be explored on the 'Securing your Visa' webpage. King’s is a licensed sponsor under the Home Office points-based immigration system.
