  • If you are collecting your card from the College, you do not need to do this within 14 days of arrival, and if you are self-isolating must wait until after then.  Your card will be kept safe for you.  
  • You must bring your passport with you. We need to scan the passport. BRP cards cannot be issued until your Entry Clearance vignette and arrival into UK date stamp have been checked.
