Fast Results With London Immigration Law Firm
Should the biometrics be required, the Home Office will likely return the passport on the very next day of your application submission, along with any documents provided by Kayani Legal Solicitors in support of your bid. From there, you can expect to receive your BRP Card (Biometric Residence Permit Card) within seven working days. Recounting our own experiences with the Home Office for same-day or premium fast track applications, we have received BRP Cards within four days of the submission of applications in the past, for Tier 1 general, Tier 1 post-study work, Tier 2 work permit or skilled worker and Tier 4 student Visa extensions alike.
Biometric Residence Permits with Expert Immigration Solicitors
A Biometric Residence Permit is a residence permit which holds your biographic biometric information and flaunts your immigration status and entitlement for the duration of your stay in the United Kingdom. The permit replaces the vignette and ink stamps previously found within the passport of those granted permission to remain in the UK. Kayani Legal Solicitors are committed to providing a full, end-to-end Biometric Residence Permit service, and take full responsibility to ensure the entire process is completed smoothly following your instruction.
What a BRP is
You’ll get a biometric residence permit (BRP) if you:
- apply to come to the UK for longer than 6 months
- extend your visa to longer than 6 months
- apply to settle in the UK
- transfer your visa to a new passport
- apply for certain Home Office travel documents
You do not have to apply separately for a BRP. You’ll get one automatically if your visa or immigration application is approved, or you’re replacing an older document.
What’s on your BRP
Your BRP will include:
- your name, date and place of birth
- your fingerprints and a photo of your face (this is your biometric information)
- your immigration status and any conditions of your stay
- whether you can access public funds, for example, benefits and health services
You may have a National Insurance (NI) number printed on the back of your BRP. Not all BRPs have this – it depends on factors like the date it was issued and your visa status.
You’ll need to apply for an NI number if all of the following apply:
- there is no one on your BRP
- you do not already have one
- you’re planning to work, claim benefits, apply for a student loan or pay Class 3 voluntary National Insurance contributions
Why you need a BRP
You can use your BRP to confirm your:
- right to study or work in the UK
- right to any public services or benefits, you’re entitled to
