Correct errors on your BRP or visa
If you think your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) or visa (if you have a vignette in your passport) is incorrect in some way, you must get it corrected as soon as possible to avoid having to pay for a replacement. Follow the instructions below.
Correcting errors on your BRP
If you applied inside the UK (leave to remain):
Apply online for administrative review within 14 days of receiving your BRP card if the length of leave (the expiry date) or the conditions (working entitlement etc) on your BRP card are incorrect. You will be charged a fee for an administrative review but this will refunded if UKVI agree there was an error.
If your BRP card shows any other errors (name, date of birth gender etc), you should report the error online within 10 days of receiving your BRP. Corrections are free if reported within 10 days. After this period, you will have to apply and pay for a replacement.
If you applied outside the UK:
Report any error online within 10 days of collecting your BRP. Corrections are free if reported within 10 days.
