If you have been informed by the university that your BRP has arrived on-campus, please read Step 1 below, otherwise read Step 2.
 
 
Step 1: 
After receiving your BRP on campus, we will inform you by email.  In order take possession of your BRP once you arrive in the UK, you will need to respond to our email (visa-reg@kcl.ac.uk) and provide us with an image of:
  • Your stamped entry clearance vignette; and

  • The ID page from your current passport;


Once you have provided those documents to us, we will confirm your arrival in the UK and your UK address before posting your BRP by Royal Mail Registered delivery. 
 
 
Step 2: 
The university is now taking part in the Post-Arrival Process with UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) that will ensure delivery of your BRP to you directly via UKVI once you have arrived in the UK.  UKVI will notify us once your BRP is awaiting production. 
We will then inform you by email and ask you to provide us with an image of:
  • Your stamped entry clearance vignette; and

  • The ID page from your current passport;

 
Once you have provided those documents to us, we will confirm your arrival in the UK and your UK address before providing your UK address to UKVI to initiate production and delivery of your BRP. 
 
 
We will also ask you to confirm your email address, which will be used by couriers TNT/Fedex and UKVI to contact you about your BRP delivery, enabling you to track it.
 
 
We will ask for your consent to share your email address with those third parties in line with GDPR compliance.  If you are not willing for your email address to be shared, you will not receive notification emails, and the BRP will be delivered unannounced to the address you provided.
 
Please also check our advice about arriving in the UK, for more guidance on self-quarantine during this time. 
 
 
Important to know: 
  • Your Home Office letter (which accompanied your Student visa vignette will still quote the university’s ACL collection address (Bush House, South East Wing).  UKVI are unable to send separate letters or communications to students affected by these changes, so please disregard the collection instructions on your Home Office letter and follow our instructions above; 

  • Collection on-campus is currently suspended.

  • It is not possible to send BRP's outside of the UK.

  • This year, UKVI has announced that there are a large number of BRP delays and significant delays in answering enquires from customers on those delays.  It is currently taking UKVI up to 40 days to respond to those enquires.

  • Where a delay in production means that you cannot take possession of your BRP within the usual timescales (within 10 days of arrival), you will be deemed to comply with that requirement if you take possession of your BRP within 10 days of it becoming available;

  • 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 or due to quarantine requirements;
