How to report a change of circumstances if you have a BRP

If you have a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) you need to notify the Home Office of any changes in your circumstances, for example; an address change.

You're in the UK and have a BRP

You must report any changes if you’re in the UK and have either:

  • got a biometric residence permit (BRP)

  • applied for a BRP but haven’t had a decision yet

How you do this depends on what you’re reporting.

Report a change of address only

You can change your address without having to apply for a new BRP.

Which form you fill in depends on whether you:

Report all other changes

You must report all other changes to your circumstances. How you do this depends on what’s changed.

You must apply for a new BRP straight away if any of these things change:

  • name, for example if you’ve got married

  • nationality

  • facial appearance

  • date of birth, for example if it was wrong

  • gender

How you report the change and apply for a new BRP depends on whether you have:

You must apply for a new BRP within 3 months. You can be fined up to £1,000 or have your stay shortened if you don’t.
