When you first arrive in the UK, your top priority will be to collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP).
The BRP can be used to confirm your identity, provide you with the right to study and your right to any public services or benefits you’re entitled to, including use of the National Health Service (NHS).
When you have collected your BRP card you then have to prove your right to work online and/or prove your right to rent online. Click on these links to complete the on-line forms to obtain the share codes. Your employer or landlord will require these to go ahead.
You will also need your BRP when travelling in & out of the UK.
Please take extra care with the BRP card.
