Coronavirus Recovery: advice and latest information

Information on Registering with Police

If you or your dependants come from one of the countries in the table below, are over 16 and are here for more than 6 months, then you will have been notified that you must register with the police within 7 days of arriving in the UK*. This notification may have been in the form of a letter issued with your visa decision letter or you may find that your visa vignette (sticker in your passport) or Biometric Residence Permit states 'Police Registration Required'.

Important information 

Currently (as of September 2020), South Wales Police (SWP) have confirmed to the University that Police Registration is suspended for students at Swansea University and their families. 

Due to social distancing and other restrictions in place, some Police forces (including SWP) are not able to facilitate registration in their areas. This means that our students, families and staff are currently exempt from registering. You should not worry, even if you have a visa or Home Office letter that states you should undertake this activity within 7 days of arrival.

Once SWP are able to facilitate Police Registration again we will update the information and process here.
