Collecting your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP - Your Visa)

When you arrive in the UK you have 10 days to collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)

You must collect your BRP from the post office you selected on your visa application form. If you do not collect your BRP within 10 days of arriving in the UK you may have to pay a fine and/or your visa may be cancelled.

The Post Office in Lincoln where you can collect your BRP is:

City Square Post Office
Sincil Street

For opening times, search for this branch on The Post Office website. You do not have to make an appointment to collect your BRP. If you arrive at the University in September there will be student ambassadors who can guide you to the Post Office in Lincoln.

For more information, including a list of the documents you will need to take when collecting your BRP from the post office, visit the website.

If you have a question about the BRP or any other immigration issues, contact the International Advice Team (based in the Student Support Centre) by email:
