Applying for a replacement passport
If you lose, or have had your passport stolen, then you will need to report this to the police in the country where the loss or theft occurred, obtain a crime reference report and make an application for a replacement passport. You should contact your country's embassy, consulate, high commission or passport office in the country where the loss or theft occurred for information on how to obtain a replacement passport. It is possible that there may be a considerable wait to obtain a replacement passport or travel document. This is not something which the Home Office nor the University can influence.
Applying for a replacement vignette visa outside the UK
If you are no longer in possession of your passport or visa vignette (sticker inside your passport), then you will need to apply for a replacement using the transfer of conditions form. There will be a vignette transfer fee for the service. Further information can be found in the Entry Clearance Guidance on the Home Office website.
Students who lose their BRP Cards in the UK
If you are no longer in possession of your BRP then you will need to report it via: www.gov.uk/biometric-residence-permits/lost-stolen-damaged
If the student finds the BRP they will not be able to use it after its report as lost or stolen because the chip will be cancelled.
If the BRP was valid for 3 months or more, report it and order a replacement online.
If your BRP had less than 3 months validity left, you do not need to get a replacement. Report a BRP lost or stolen if you do not need replacement using the link below.
