To visit or stay in the United Kingdom, some foreign nationals are required to register with the police force where they are living within 7 days of arrival.

If you need to register, this requirement will be shown on your visa, passport, Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) or Home Office letter.

Failure to register with the relevant police force when required to do so risks a fine of £5,000 and/or 6 months imprisonment.
