Registering with the Police
International students who have a visa that requires them to register with the Police must do so at the Overseas Visitors Records Office (OVRO) in London. If you need to register, this requirement will be written in your passport and you will need to register within seven days of your arrival in the United Kingdom.
Police registration is a legal requirement. If you fail to register with the Police and do not keep your Police Registration Certificate updated, you are committing a criminal offence and are breaking the conditions of your visa. This could result in serious consequences for your Immigration status and for your future UK visa applications.
