The UK Border Agency scheme to restrict work for A8 (Czech, Estonian, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Polish, Slovak, and Slovenian) nationals ended on 01 May 2011. After 1 May 2011, A8 nationals will not be required to apply for an EEA Registration Certificate to confirm their right of residence.

It will be open to A8 nationals, in the same way as other EU nationals, to apply for a registration certificate under the 2006 EEA Regulations confirming that they are exercising a Treaty right as a worker. There is, however, no requirement for them to be in possession of such a document in order to be working legally. Employers will still need to see evidence of nationality.

After the scheme has ended, an A2 National who is the dependant of an A8 National should no longer use the BR7 form, they should apply on an EEA1 form as the family member of an EEA national.
