Biometric Residence Permit Changes

Information related to Visas and Sponsorship on our website is out of date – last updated in 2012. Regrettably, Visiting Arts does not have a staff member working in this area currently and we are not available for advice related to visas. Upcoming changes to replace postal biometric appointments and Biometric Residence Permit help lines with online services

As part of the UK Border Agency's strategy to move services online, they are replacing the telephone biometric appointment booking service for postal applicants and the telephone BRP management and verification services with online services.



Visa update - Biometric Residence Permit Rollout

From 14th December highly skilled workers, temporary workers and their dependants successfully applying to extend their stay under Tiers 1 and 5 of the Points Based System will receive a Biometric Residence Permit.
