A Personal Licence permits a specified person to sell or authorise the sale of alcohol at a premises that holds a valid Premises Licence.
From 6 April 2017 Licensing Authorities are required to check the immigration status and right to work of ALL those applying for Personal Licence.
The new provisions mean that Personal Licences must not be issued to persons who are:
- Unlawfully present,
- not permitted to work, or
- permitted to work, but not this type of work.
The issue of a licence to a disqualified person is prohibited.
All licence applications made on or after 6 April 2017, must satisfy the Licensing Authority that the applicant is not disqualified by their immigration status from holding a licence before the licence is issued. Each application made on or from this date will need to provide a copy of the supporting documentation as detailed below.
- Current or expired British passport or,
- full UK birth certificate and suitable documentation confirming your National Insurance number
These must be a copy of the original documents only.
