Work Permit Policy

Feb 10, 2021


Introduction

On 31st December 2020 at 11:00pm, freedom of movement between the United Kingdom and the European Union will end and as such free movement to Jersey will also cease. All persons who are non-British or Irish, will require immigration permission to visit, work, study or settle in Jersey. 

The purpose of this policy is to set out the main routes available to employers to employ migrant workers. Work permits are a requirement under the Immigration (Work Permits) (Jersey) Rules 1995 and as such employers are required to apply for a work permit for those individuals who require immigration permission to enter or remain in Jersey for work. 

Work permits are not required for those that have acquired immigration permission in the form of settled or pre-settled status. 

The maintenance of a strict work permit policy will maintain and strengthen Jersey’s position within the Common Travel Area (CTA), allowing the continued free movement of persons within the CTA, whilst retaining a robust external border.

Details of the Policy and Procedures can be found via the following link: Work Permit Policy & Procedures (gov.je)
