    Because she has a problem where employers are too scared to employ somebody without one...

    It might not be law for her to have one but it sure as hell makes life easier.

    If she has ILR to me it's a no brainer to simply get a UK passport. Job done. Easier for traveling in the west too.

    There is a simple check, companies who are in doubt should use the employer free phone helpline number to verify their right to work, i understand that none EU nationals who arrived after May 2014 need a BRP...

    Do what's best for your wife mate. Spend the money.
    If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.

    If she was continuing her old job, then no.

    However, for new employment, then current documents are required under The Immigration (Restrictions on Employment) Order 2007, as amended.

    it seem to me that paul tee nung, was aware of this problem back in 2015, when it was posted that all new employers will not accept ILR in an expired passport, and was advised to obtain a BRP,

    fast forward to 2017 and the op's wife is applying for a new job and lo and behold they will not accept the expired passport, the rules are the rules and logic does not come into it,

    Yes ILR is a good thing to have, but not as good as a UK passport, what would happen if a long period return to Thailand was required.

    My wife was never required to have a BRP, but went asap to a UK passport, the earlier its done the cheaper it is.

    Is it the same place for the BRP as the original place you sent your application for FLR? If it is you should have it on your FLR papework.
