Police checks

The police may carry out checks on sex workers or their premises at any time. Such checks may take place in apartments, organised premises or on the street and concern any person engaging in sex work behind closed doors or outside, via the internet or small advertisements.

Police officers may also verify the licence documentation for premises and the identity of individuals found on site.

Any individual involved in sex work without a valid work permit and/or without BTPI registration is liable to incur a fine.
