NotesBeware of emailed job offers for childcare and other similar positions in the UK. These are all frauds.

• Since November 2008, no visas are granted for household workers from outside Europe. Work visas are only granted for highly-skilled positions, most of which require university degrees.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK requires you to pay them any money. All fees would be paid by the employer.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK uses a free email address from Yahoo, Gmail, or similar services.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK uses a telephone number that begins with +4470 (070). These are non-geographic numbers available to anyone in the world.

• No legitimate business requests payment via Western Union.

mercure hotel true or not??
Good day!

I also received the same kind of email from the travel agency that the mercure hotels are tied up with. It is exactly how the others email was.

Dear ,

We have been contacted by your employer (Hotel) to provide you details of your work permit and visa application and attached to this mail are the forms documents and information that is needed for you to fill so that the UK Immigration board can grant you your work permit. Please review them although we will give you the breakdown of all you need to know about the processing of your travel documents in this mail.

In accordance with the amendment to the Immigration, Asylum, and Nationality which clearly stated that all employee seeking to work in the United Kingdom who are currently Non-Citizen and Non-Resident in the United Kingdom are required to provide proof of the Right to Work in the United Kingdom. After been contacted by you and your employer, we have contacted the British immigration Service with your Employment Contract so that they can provide us with the information and documents needed for the processing of your travel papers.

Vaccination would be carried out at the port of entry into the country and it is advisable to present all documents on procurement as that would enable the authorities vested with the duty to carry out the vaccinations and administer their duties. The DER Certifications will have to embrace the registration and approval of your relevant information with the designated local agencies (Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Commerce and industry respectively with DER inclusive).

The reason for the review of this policy as communicated by the DER is to ensure that expatriates with Letter of Contract do not have to travel down to United Kingdom for any other reason other than the primary aim of commencement of work as required.

1. DER Application Form - £110GBP

(a) Expatriate Work Permit - £110GBP
(b) Foreign Affairs Certification – £105GBP
3. DER Expatriates Quota Approval Charge in relevant categories £346GBP (Has already been paid by your Employer)

This equals a Total £325GBP (To be paid by you) Please note that the cost of Visa and Prepaid Flight Tickets has been undertaken by your employer. Also charges of Workers registration Scheme certification (WRS) and National Insurance (NI) will also be handled by your employer.

You will be required to scan and send to us immediately,
