Support for non-UK EU staff

Following the outcome of the EU referendum, we put in place immigration support for non-UK EU colleagues affected by this decision.

Reimbursement of registration certificate or permanent residency application fee

If you wish to apply for a registration certificate or permanent residency under the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006, the University will reimburse the associated fee of £65. Claims can be backdated to 23 June 2016.

Once you have applied for and received your registration certificate or permanent residency from UK Visas and Immigration, please complete an expenses claim form for staff and attach the receipt from UK Visas and Immigration along with a copy of the registration certificate or permanent residency. Please hand deliver or post via the internal mail to Human Resources, Level 1, Arts Tower.
