Guidance: Undocumented Commonwealth citizens resident in the UK

Updated: We have set up an email alert service for Commonwealth citizens, including the Windrush generation.

This information is for Commonwealth citizens (known as ‘Windrush’ cases) who are long-term residents of the UK and do not have documents to demonstrate their status. It explains their position and what they need to do next.

There is also guidance for landlords about right to rent checks and for employers about right to work checks on undocumented Commonwealth citizens
