  • Changes to right to work checks and illegal working penalties
  • Business visitor rules changes
  • Other UK visas that authorise work, including an update on the Graduate visa route
  • Electronic Travel Authorisations and the phase-out of Biometric Residence Permits

The date of this webinar, 9 April 2024, has now passed but the recording is available below. Please watch to ensure you understand the impact of immigration developments on your organisation.
