Police registration

police registration

Nationals from certain countries have a stamp in their passport or wording on their visa that tells them to register with the police. If your spouse or children (aged 16 or over) entered the UK as your dependants, they are likely to also have this condition. If you need to register, it should usually be written on your visa or BRP as "register with the police within seven days" or in some cases (where a person has made an extension within the UK), it may state the condition in an accompanying letter so please be sure to check this.

Who needs to register?

Nationals of countries in the table below must register with the police if:

  • Your stay in the UK is longer than six months, and

  • It states on your visa stamp/BRP card that police registration is required. Please make sure you read the information on your visa.
