Police registration

From 1st August 2022, the Police Registration Scheme has been temporarily suspended. See below for how this might affect you.

As of 1st August 2022, all overseas visitors are no longer required to register with the police even if your visa or Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) advises you to do so 

You can find out more information on the Police Registration Scheme Public Notice - August 2022

If you already have an appointment booked to meet with the police or have any further questions please contact Merseyside Police or email them at OVRO@merseyside.police.uk.

Updating UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) of a change of circumstance

If you already hold a police registration certificate, you will no longer be required to update the police with any changes to your address or your passport or visa for example. However, you must inform UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) of any changes in your circumstances such as a change of address or change of nationality. You can do this online here

The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) also have guidance on reporting a change of circumstance here
