Key Points

  • The United Kingdom lifted police registration requirements for foreign nationals traveling to the country for long-term purposes


The United Kingdom’s (UK) government will no longer require foreign nationals to register under the Police Registration Scheme. As such, foreign nationals who enter the UK for long-term stay purposes will not have to report to the local police to register their residential address. For additional information on foreign nationals previously required to register with the local police, check here.

What are the Changes?

The government of the UK removed requirements for foreign nationals to register their address with local police officials. According to the government announcement, removing this step will reduce the UK immigration process redundancies. Foreign nationals will still be required to register their address as part of the biometric stage of applying for a residence permit.
