Police registration

Police registration  

As of 5th August 2022, the requirement to register with the police upon arrival to the UK no longer exists.

This means that the relevant foreign nationals of specified nationalities aged 16 or over who are usually granted more than 6 months leave under certain visa routes are no longer required to register.

This change applies to those who have already registered with the Police and who have a condition to register with the police listed as part of their leave to enter or remain in the UK. They will also no longer be required to communicate any updated personal details to the police.

Those who have been issued with a visa with the requirement to register but who are yet to travel, will have their visa reissued where possible or be notified of the changes in advance of travel. For those who have travelled with the requirement in place, should they attend a local police registration office, they will be advised of the changes accordingly.
