Find out below which changes should be reported, how soon to report them, and who to report them to.
I'd like to report a change to my name
You'll need to book an appointment to attend the Overseas Visitors Records Office (OVRO). You can do this through your online account.
Please bring with you:
your police registration certificate (PRC)
your biometric residence permit BRP with UKVI/Home Office approval letter or email
your passport containing your visa and any new passport you may have been issued since you last registered
proof of name change such as a deed poll or passport issued under your change of name (original document only)
If you live and are registered with another police force outside of the London or City of London area and need to report your name change, you must report to the police force you currently live in and not the police force covering the area you work or study if this happens to be in London.
