Employer accreditation changes


Validity of AEWV accreditation will be extended by 12 months for employers who have applied or will apply before 4 July 2023.

In May 2022, the Government announced that any employer seeking to hire any migrant, including those with open work rights (such as working holidaymakers or students), would need to be accredited in 2023. That accreditation requirement has been deferred to 2024, allowing employers more time to prepare.

More detailed information on the employer accreditation extension will be made available next year.
