ENTRY AND RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS FOR CROATIAN NATIONALS IN THE UK

Official information on the entry and residence conditions for Croatian nationals in the UK is available at https://www.gov.uk/croatian-national .
Croatian nationals do not have direct access to the labour market in the UK; this is despite the Republic of Croatia being a member of the EU. The UK has introduced a limitation for Croatian nationals who intend to live and work in the UK. For the issuance of a "registration certificate" or work permit, Croatian nationals need to contact UKVI - United Kingdom Visas and Immigration (the British immigration authority). Information on how to obtain a National Insurance number is available at https://www.gov.uk/apply-national-insurance-number.
The Embassy cannot intervene in the process of applying for British registration certificates or work permits or any other permit or certificate. Croatian nationals have to regulate their status in the UK by themselves or by appointing an immigration lawyer/solicitor (more information available at: www.immigrationadvisersgude.co.uk ).

 

LEGAL ASSISTANCE

For Croatian nationals, legal assistance and representation at UK institutions can only be provided by an authorised lawyer/solicitor; alternatively, one can represent himself/herself independently. The Embassy is not legally authorised to represent Croatian citizens in proceedings before the state authorities in the UK.
