How to update your personal details to the HO?

Foreign nationals, who are residing the UK or whose visa application was made in the UK, are required to update their personal information by using the official website: https://visa-address-update.service.gov.uk/.The latter allows migrants to update their home address, correspondence address, legal representative’s address, dependants’ details or inform the Home Office of a change in their legal representation.

Applicants will need to provide their full name, date of birth, nationality, old postcode, new address, passport/BRP/ARC number, and the name/date of birth/nationality of any dependants if they need to update their details.

Individuals will also need to provide evidence of their identity and proof of their address, for instance:

  • An identity document (ie passport, BRP, ARC, EEA identity card, travel document, photocard UK driving licence);
  • Recent documents showing your new address (ie utility bills, bank, credit card or mortgage statements, rental agreement, council tax bill or benefits statement). Please provide one document to evidence your address (dated within the last three months);
  • Solicitor’s letter of authority on headed paper, if you’re updating your legal representative’s details.

Please note that if a legal representative is submitting the form on someone’s behalf, the representative must also include a letter of authority.
