If you have not heard about police registration before, you need to read this article carefully. We will tell you the necessity about this and provide you the instructions.

On your visa page or BRP card, if there's any content related to “Police Registration within 7 days of Arrival in UK/ Police Registration/ Pol Reg”, you are required to do the police registrion。This is very important! It may affect your immigrant history in UK without registering in time.


★ First Time Registration

FEE£34磅(Yes, I'm afraid it is not free)。However, you will only be charged for once, unless you've lost your police registration letter。


After registration, you will be given a A4-size paper. Your personal information will be recorded and stamped on this paper. This letter can be used as address proof as well. Also, you need to keep this letter for further personal information update. 


★ Personal Information Update


If the following status or information has been changed, you are required to go to police station to record the updated information with 8 days:

1. Address;

2. New visa;

3. Passport number;

4. Marital status;

5. Employment status.

Again, if you have not got registered or updated on time, you may face a fine up to £1500 or even a sentence to jail.
