Visas & Immigration

If you are moving from a foreign country, your passport or identity card will be checked when you arrive at a UK airport or port – it must be valid for the whole of your stay.

You may also need a visa to enter the UK, depending on your nationality.

If you are a citizen of the European Union, the European Economic Area, or the Overseas Countries and Territories, you do not need a visa to visit or work in the UK.

Nationals from other countries are subject to immigration controls – your department should instruct you as to what you need to do to obtain the right to work in the UK.

The University has an Immigration Compliance Team within the HR department. They can assist you with immigration applications, including applications for spouses, partners and families – contact them on complianceteam@admin.cam.ac.uk

More information is available on the HR website, the University’s Brexit FAQs page, and PdOC’s immigration presentation.
