Correspondence from Home Office for Police Registration

Dear Visa and Migration Ltd

Police Registration 

This is to notify you of changes to the way in which migrants are informed of the requirement to register with the police. 

As a result of the changes made earlier this year, the police registration condition no longer appears on the Biometric Residence Permits (BRP) issued to migrants coming to the UK. 

Applicants required to register with the police applying for leave to enter the UK will see the police registration condition on the 30 day entry clearance vignette issued to enable travel to the UK. 

They will need to show the vignette to the police when registering, together with the letter confirming that their application for leave was successful. 

Those required to register must do so within 7 days of arrival in the UK. 

Those applying for leave to remain and who are already in the UK will be personally notified if they are required to register with the police by way of the Home Office letter confirming that their application for leave has been successful. They must show this letter when registering. 

Information on registering with the police, including the documents required, is available at

If, after they’ve arrived in the UK an applicant realises that their entry clearance (visa) vignette has been issued with an incorrect endorsement they can request to have it amended. Visit for information on what to do.
