Police registration

You may need to register with the Police if you come to the UK for longer than six months and are from one of the countries required to register. You’ll be told if you need to register with the Police on one of the following documents:

Your entry visa vignette (sticker in your passport) if you’re travelling to the UK.

The Home Office letter that approved your application for leave.

You must register with the Police if you’re from:

Afghanistan, Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belarus, Bolivia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Cuba, Egypt, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Libya, Moldova, Morocco, North Korea, Oman, Palestine, Peru, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Yemen.

If you don’t register with the Police then any future immigration applications that you make may be affected and your current leave may be shortened. After you register, please ensure you keep your certificate in a safe place. You must keep it updated if you change your address or get a new visa.

You must register within seven days of arriving in the UK; or if you are required to collect a BRP after arriving in the UK, within seven days of doing so.

To book an appointment to register with the Police, please visit the dedicated Northants police webpage.

You will need to be able to upload a passport style photo as you book your appointment. You will also be required to pay £34.00 using the secure online payment system. No appointment can be made without pre-payment.

  • Your passport,
  • Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) Card (if applicable),
