Registering with the Police

As part of your visa conditions some nationalities have to register with the local police

Do I have to Register?

If you have to register with the Police this will be noted on your visa, BRP card or in the letter you received advising that you had been granted permission to enter or remain in the UK. If you have recently renewed your visa with a University Adviser you will automatically be given an appointment with the police when your visa is returned from the Home Office. The Student Immigration Advice and Compliance Team will contact you to let you know your visa is ready to collect and will provide you with an appointment slot.

How much will it cost?

When you register for the first time you will need to pay £34 per person.
