6. Report a lost or stolen BRP
You can report your BRP lost or stolen from inside or outside the UK.
You can get someone to use the service for you, for example a legal representative, a charity, employer, college or university.
You need the following to report your BRP lost or stolen:
- your full name, date of birth and nationality
- an email or postal address
You won’t be able to use your BRP if you find it after you report it lost or stolen.
The Home Office will contact you within 1 working day.
What happens next
You’ll be told if you need to replace your BRP.
