It is important that you report changes in circumstance to the Overseas Visitors Registration Office (OVRO) within seven or eight days, depending on the change.

Find out below which changes should be reported, how soon to report them, and who to report them to. Some changes in your circumstances can only be reported at your local police station, but in most cases you will need to visit the OVRO.

I would like to report a change to my new or extended visa.

Thank you. You will need to report this change at the OVRO within seven days of the change.

Please make sure you bring all of the following:

  • Police Registration Certificate (PRC)
  • Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)
  • Passport
  • Home Office letter which shows your police registration requirement and grant of Leave To Remain in the UK

If you have applied for and have been granted Further Leave to Remain in the UK, it is vital that you bring your grant letter from the Home Office as well as the documents mentioned above. We will not be able to update your Police Registration Certificate without seeing this original letter.
