Documentation acceptable as proof of right to work in the UK - limited right to work in the UK (list B)

Under the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006, to establish that an individual has the right to work in the UK, an employer should manually check and copy one of a number of specified documents (or two documents in a specified combination) from list A or list B or use the Home Office online right to work service, depending on the documentation the individual holds.1

The documents in list B indicate that the holder has a limited right to live and work in the UK. These documents provide an excuse against payment of a civil penalty for a limited period. Therefore employers should carry out follow-up document checks.
