Police registration

For those needing to register with the police on arrival

The Government has decided to abolish the Police Registration Scheme. The scheme, which requires some migrants to register with the police.

On Friday 5 August 2022, the Home Office announced that it would abolish the police registration scheme for international students in the UK, with immediate effect even if your immigration documentation mentions that you must. 

If a migrant has previously registered with the police, they do not need to do anything. 

If, prior to the scheme being abolished, you failed to register within the required timeframe, you are no longer required to register.
