Biometric Residence Permits in the UK (BRPs) - Update June 2015


Biometric Residence permit (BRP) is a UK residence permit which holds your biographic details (name, date and place of birth) and biometric information (facial image and fingerprints), and shows your immigration status.

When your son/daughter’s visa application is successful they will be issued with a vignette (sticker) in their passport to enter the UK and a decision letter. The vignette is valid for 30 days from the date at which they have stated they will enter the UK. Students must then collect their BRP card once they have entered the UK within 10 days. This is a new system. The BRP will be their visa and it must be collected before the vignette’s expiry.

In order to make the process of collection as easy as possible for pupils, most of the schools will collect BRPs on students’ behalf from their designated Post Office during the first week of term.

The only time when the above process will not be the case is if the student will be in the UK at an earlier date than the start of term. In which case it will be parents’ responsibility to ensure their son/daughter collects the BRP from the Post Office or that a guardian takes the student to the Post Office to do so.

Our consultants

We have been working with Lucullus Educational Consultants for more than one year. They helped us choose which schools to apply for. They then took care of all the necessary steps, which included contacting the schools and arranging tests, interviews, visas, payment, etc. To be honest, we would never have succeeded without them. Our aim was not just to get into any school, but to get an offer from one of the highly-ranked schools. As experienced advisors, they were very competent and easily coped with the huge amount of information which was required for our daughter to apply successfully to one of Britain’s most prestigious schools. Lucullus Educational Consultants always made us feel confident as they always had the process under control. After we decided on the schools that suited our daughter, they organized a visit for us to visit them. When we got the offer from the school that we wanted, we were all thrilled.
