The UK Border Agency (UKBA) has published revised guidance notes for Bulgarian and Romanian accession worker card applicants and employers, and a new version of Form BR3.

Accession worker card applicants from Bulgaria and Romania should now use the new ‘01/2012’ versions of the BR3 form and ‘guidance notes for Bulgarians and Romanians who want to work in the UK‘ when applying for an accession worker card.

The UKBA said the ‘amended versions have been published to make changes to the BR3 application form to allow for a Bulgarian or Romanian work permit application and the BR3 application to be caseworked simultaneously to avoid delays’.

You can download the form and notes from the ‘Work permits and accession worker cards‘ page on the UK Border Agency website. Source: UK Border Agency.

Bulgarian and Romanian yellow card applicants for student or self employment should continue to use Form BR1.

Unlike other EU members, Bulgarian and Romanian citizens will not have unrestricted ‘free movement’ rights to work in the UK until at least the end of 2013
