Controlling and Coercive Behaviour: Widening the Net
As of 2 September the Home Office has introduced some changes to the police registration procedure for certain migrants arriving to live, work or study in the London area. If registration is required, this will be written in the passport. A new requirement is that all relevant migrants staying in the Metropolitan Police area can only register at the Overseas Visitors Records Office (OVRO) in London at the following address:-
Overseas Visitors Records Office
180 Borough High Street
London SE1 1LH
It is still necessary to register within seven days of arrival in the UK and additional documentation must now be taken to OVRO. A proforma application form has also been published and the Home Office is advising that this is printed and completed prior to arrival. Click here for a link to the form. See below for a list of the required documentation:-
For relevant migrants not staying in the Metropolitan Police area, they should continue to register with their local police station.
