UNITED KINGDOM: Purple Registration Certificate Required for Croatian Nationals

The work authorization process for Croatian nationals differs somewhat from the work authorization process in place for Bulgarian and Romanian nationals.

Croatian nationals must ensure that their employers are registered sponsors under the Points-Based System for Tier 2. The employer must issue a CoS to the applicant. Thereafter, the applicant must apply for a Purple Registration Certificate using Form CR3. The applicant can apply for this from overseas if he or she has not yet arrived in the UK. There is a fee of £55. The applicant must not begin employment in the UK until the Registration Certificate has been received because the penalties for non-compliance are severe: up to 3 months' imprisonment or a £1000 fine.
