Bulgaria and Romania

Nationals from Bulgaria and Romania are also free to come to the United Kingdom, but, unless they are exempt, will be subject to worker authorisation.  This means they can only work in the United Kingdom if they hold a valid accession worker authorisation document or are exempt from authorisation.

The restrictions on Bulgarian and Romanian workers ends on 31st December 2013 so for workers employed on or after 1st January 2014 these restrictions will not apply.
