Overseas visitor registration
If you are living in the West Midlands, or are moving to the area, you may need to complete a registration process.
If the visa in your passport says 'Police registration within seven days of arrival,' or it says on the back of your visa extension card 'Report extension to the police,' you must book an appointment within seven days to register. The requirement to register with the police can also appear on a letter from the Home Office, which will arrive separately and within a few days of receiving a letter to collect your biometric residence permit (BRP). To find out more information on BRP's, visit the government website.
