Immigration Documents to Bring to an Interview
« on: May 10, 2017, 11:58:55 AM »
I know that on my spouse visa I can work but it doesn't say that I may work on my BRP, it only says what I can't do (receive public funds).  I FINALLY got an interview (yay yay yay only my second one in 3 months here) and they have asked me to bring  Evidence of right to work in the UK, with a list attached to the email.

The first category in the list is like, unlimited time to remain and work here (citizenship or ILR etc).  The second one is 'Documents that provide time-limited right to work in the UK' and lists

 'A current Biometric Immigration Document (Biometric Residence Permit) issued by

the Home Office to the holder which indicates that the named person can currently

stay in the UK and is allowed to do the work in question.'

Even though my BRP doesn't say work permitted, is that enough?  Or is there a printout from the home office website I can bring that confirms I can definitely work?  I'd really like this job and have the exact experience and qualifications they asked for (and this is a competitive area for jobs) so I'd hate for immigration things to provide any bumps.

What you can and can’t do with your visa

You can use your ‘family of a settled person’ visa to:

    work (you can’t work if you’ve got a visa to get married or to become civil partners)
    study

You can’t get public funds for yourself and any dependants.

Oh oops, it's on the other side! I didn't realize there were TWO 'remarks' sections.  Ah well.  Good links to have above anyway.
