Automatic work permits

Work permits are, upon application, granted automatically to the following -  

An application for an automatic permit is made directly to the Department by the applicant, costs £60 and is issued for one year at a time.

An automatic permit authorises the employment of the person named in it generally, in any capacity, subject to any conditions specified in the permit. The permit is not connected to a specific employment.

Persons with certain unspent criminal convictions have no entitlement to an automatic permit (see further at criminal records).
