You do not have to apply separately for a BRP. You’ll get one automatically if your visa or immigration application is approved, or you’re replacing an older document.
One of the following email addresses can be used to follow up a BRP card being issued, depending on the client’s circumstances:
Further Submissions Unit : RCMLOA@homeoffice.gov.uk or RCMCSUappointments@homeoffice.gov.uk if they are a failed asylum seeker who was granted status after submitting a fresh claim
Allowed appeals unit: Refusedcasemanagementallowedappeals@homeoffice.gov.uk if they are an asylum seeker who has been granted Refugee Status after being successful at the appeal stage
Asylum team at Lunar House: LSEASYLUMadminsupport@homeoffice.gov.uk or LSEASYLUMcaseworksupport@homeoffice.gov.uk if they are an asylum seeker who has been granted refugee status after their first asylum claim
For cards issued for 4.5 years instead of 5 years – there is an issue related to Brexit and EU rules, please see link. Right to remain is not affected and they have a right to apply for a new correct card mid 2024.
