Coronavirus (Covid-19): We're asking you please to only call 999 if it is an emergency. If it's not an emergency, use our online services if you can. If you’re looking for information about the government instruction to stay at home and how that may affect you, you'll find guidance on Gov.uk. We’ll be updating information on our services over the coming days, please check online for those updates.
Coronavirus (Covid-19): registration services are currently suspended. If you have an appointment you should have received a notification by email. There will be no penalty action taken against anyone who is unable to attend an appointment or book a new appointment.
Those returning to their home countries prior to registering with OVRO should not face any difficulties at UK ports upon re-entry for non-registration due to the suspension of our service.
How to register
The Overseas Visitors Records Office (OVRO) is the place to visit in London if you live in London and have been required to register with the police, an essential part of many foreign nationals’ visa conditions.
