Registering with the police

If you have a stamp in your passport which tells you to register your arrival in the UK you will need to visit The Overseas Visitors Records Office at Brandon House. In this case, please see here.

Brandon House is open from 09.00 - 16.00 Monday to Friday. The telephone number is 020 7230 1208.

The nearest tube station is Borough, which is on the Northern Line. When you come out of the station turn left, cross the road and Brandon House is in front of you.

From Holland Park you should take the Central line to Bank station and then change onto the Northern line to Borough. The underground journey takes about half an hour.

From Westcroft Square you should take the District line to Monument station and then walk to Bank station (this is well signposted and takes about 4 minutes). At Bank station take the Northern line to Borough. The underground journey takes about 40 minutes.

If you are studying on the Intensive General English course or English for University you should visit Brandon House after class on your first Friday. If you have classes all day you will need to miss some class time. Please tell your trainer why you won't be able to come to class and they will explain what work you will miss.

The Overseas Visitors Records Office, 323 Borough High Street, London, SE1 1JL

If you need advice about any details of your own application, it is usually best to approach one of our representatives in your own country, or to contact the local British Embassy or Consulate.  You can also visit the UKVI website.
