Overseas Residents Being Given Biometric Residence Permit

UK Biometric Residence Permit
Starting March, 2015 onwards, all non-EEA citizens would be required to apply for a BRP at the time of applying for authorization to stay in the UK if it exceeds a period of six months. In such cases, they have to collect their BRP within a maximum of 10 days from the time of their arrival in the UK. The change will be brought about in four month’s time between March and July, 2015 and would be subjected to parliamentary consent.

All other things remain as before, except that an applicant will now also have to furnish details about their imminent date of journey, post code and a UK address. The post code helps in identifying the Post Office branch where the Biometric Residence Permit would be sent in order to be received by the applicant. In this regard, the applicant will receive proper guidance to select the most apt collection branch.

The successful applicants will get a letter about the decision which would include a notification that their BRP must be collected within the stipulated time. The travel document or passport would be signed with a 30-day short validity describing your travel scenario. There are no extra charges levied on the applicant, it remains the same as before.

One must visit the UK within this 30-day period otherwise he or she has to apply to the Entry Clearance Officer to hand them a replacement short-term visa in order to complete their travel in the country.
