Important to know: Please ensure that your visa has been granted and is valid before you travel to the UK.
If you are eligible to enter the UK border using an electronic gate (e-gates), you will need to keep evidence of the date you arrived in the UK, such as a flight ticket or boarding pass. You must provide this as part of your enrolment (the Right to Study check) and to be eligible to enrol at King's.
Students need to collect their BRP within 10 days of arrival in the UK or before the expiry of their short-term travel vignette, whichever is later.
Important to know: You will not face any penalties if you are unable to collect your BRP within 10 days of arrival in the UK as a result of a production issue.
- You have applied for your Student visa from outside the UK and on your Student visa application, you have chosen to collect your BRP from King's
- You have applied for your Student visa from outside the UK and on your Student visa application, you have chosen to collect your BRP card from a post office

Your BRP card will be delivered to King's College London by UKVI (UK Visas & Immigration) approximately 2-3 weeks after your entry to the UK.
Once King's receives your BRP, we will contact you by email inviting you to book an appointment to come and collect your BRP. The email will have a link to book your appointment to collect your BRP and instructions on where to go and what to bring with you. You must bring your valid passport with you to the appointment to be able to collect your BRP.
You can only collect your BRP by booking an appointment.
Important to know: you should not book your BRP card collection appointment using a link provided to another student, as you will not be able to collect your card.
Important to know: King’s immigration sponsor responsibilities require us to perform a number of checks and processes on the BRPs before we can release them to you. You may have received confirmation of the BRP card delivery to King’s from the courier (TNT), but you must wait to receive a further invitation from King’s which enables you to book a slot to collect your BRP card on campus.
If you have further questions regarding the BRP issuance process, please email the Visa Compliance team in the first instance.
