Do I need to keep my Police Registration Certificate?
You should keep your police registration certificate safe as you will need to include it if you make another visa application within the UK or if you need to inform the police of any changes.
You should tell the police if your police registration certificate is lost or stolen. If it is lost, you will receive a lost property number and if it is stolen you will receive a crime reference number. You should then get a replacement from the police using the Thames Valley Police Foreign Nationals online system.
Do I need to do anything else once I have registered?
You will need to inform the police within seven days when any of the details on your police registration certificate changes.
To make changes you will need to update your record and book another appointment with the police. You do not need to pay for these appointments.
- Change of address
- Change of college/ university/ course
- Change of occupation
- Change in marital status
- Change of visa/ extension of visa
- New passport details
- Any children born whilst you are in the UK
- Exemption from Police Registration
If you do not inform the police of changes to your details you may be in breach of your visa conditions, and the Home Office could refuse future immigration applications or remove you from the UK. You might be barred from returning to the UK for a certain period.
