In this post we´re going to show you how to view and prove your inmigration status through the gov.uk website.
So for the sake of this, we´ve already put the link into the search engine, you should see the overview here:
and if you go down to the bottom and press “Start now”.
What I´m going yo do now is choose which document to process this through. So I´m going to select the passport. “Continue” there.
And I´m going to enter the passport number. Press “Continue”.
Now enter the date of birth. Press “Continue” again.
Now it´s going to ask you how you would like your security code, I´m going yo ask for this come through text message, so I´m going to select this option now.
And the shortly you should receive a short message. Mine has come through now. Press “Continue”.
So once you´ve entered the security code, it should bring up an overview. This will include the names, details, and pictures.
This does actually say here that this particular example does have a pre-settled status, also known as limited leave to remain. This is valid until the 17th of August 2024.
This means that you can live and work and study in the UK, and access public funds and services until the 17th. To stay in the UK after this date you will need to apply for a leave to remain such as a settled status. You can apply for a settled status once you have lived in the UK for 5 years. So this is a basic overview.
If any of the details or pictures are wrong here, you can go to the bottom of the page where it says “Update your details”, click into that here and then you can look into seeing if there´s anything incorrect and you can amend that yourself. Should you require more information for your employer, there´s actually a selection here that says “Prove your status”.
We´ll click into that now (“Prove your status to someone”). It should then take you through to “What do you need to share the code for?”
so this could be for example “to prove my right to work” so click on that. It should then take you through to another example.
Press “Continue”. And it´s going to give you a unique code. With this code, you can then get this emailed across to keep in the safe space so send the code via email.
I´m just going to put my email address in here now.
So that should come through shortly.
And if I just go through to my email, that´s just come through now and that´s something that you can share with your employer.
So that´s it really, that´s quite simple. If you need any more information, please reach out to the comments.
