*** Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Police Registration of Foreign Nationals has been temporarily suspended as a precautionary measure due to the coronavirus situation.

All existing appointments will be cancelled.  You can still create an account and complete the online form, but you will be unable to make an appointment at this time.

This will not affect your immigration status and no penalty will be given for missed or late registrations or for being unable to tell us about a change in your circumstances during these unprecedented times.

Please visit this web page regularly for the latest update.

If you have any questions, please email us only at: PRU@avonandsomerset.police.uk



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.

*** In the current Covid-19 pandemic, you will be asked to self isolate for 14 days on arrival to the UK. You must complete the online registration form within 7 days of arrival to book an appointment on a date after your self isolation. ***

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