International staff and overseas working

Updated 31 March 2020

We know that this is an uncertain time for everyone and we’re doing our best, through these pages, to support you and make sure you have all the information you need.

We’re also aware that international colleagues who are in the UK on a visa will have additional concerns, so we’ll be publishing updates on how coronavirus is affecting immigration and visas as we receive them from the Home Office. Immigration and visa updates are available on the Human Resources website, where you can sign up to receive an email alert whenever we update the page.

Working at home from an overseas location

If, due to the current travel restrictions, you are working at home from an overseas location please ensure that your Head of School/Service is aware of this so that additional advice can be provided to you. We may ask you to provide some additional information during this time so that potential tax and social security requirements (for you and for the University) can be assessed.

If you have any questions or concerns about working overseas, please contact InternationalHR@leeds.ac.uk.
