Honorary Appointments for non-EU Nationals

Date: Mon, 01 Oct 2012 11:39:00 BST

Please note that if you intend to offer an honorary or non-paid position to a Non-EU National you will need to check their eligibility to take up the role and, where appropriate, reimbursement of travel and associated expenses.

It is likely that a Non-EU National will need to make special arrangements to obtain a Business Visa from the UK Border Agency PRIOR to their visit to the UK, and they will need to allow adequate time for this before their honorary appointment commences.

Please contact your HR Adviser for advice and guidance, or visit the UKBA website.
