Arrangements for Police Registration 2018
Certain international students will be required to register with the police in the UK. If you applied for your visa overseas, this requirement will be printed on your 30-day visa sticker in your passport. The full list of nationalities who are required to register with the police in the UK is given on the UK government website.
If you applied for your visa in the UK, this requirement will be printed on the letter you were given when you received your passport and documents.
Please check carefully whether you need to register with the police, as the consequences of not doing so can be serious.
Imperial College has a special arrangement with the Overseas Visitors Records Office (OVRO) in central London to enable us to arrange pre-booked appointment times for our students to be able to complete this requirement.
We will be emailing students from the relevant nationalities with more information about this soon, so please wait to be contacted with further information.
Do not worry about the 7-day requirement for Police registration: as we have a special arrangement with OVRO this does not apply.
