Get access to your eVisa

An eVisa is an online record of your immigration status. 

To get access to your eVisa, you’ll need to create a UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) account.

Who can use this service

You can use this service if the Home Office has emailed you about how to get access to your eVisa.

If you’ve not been contacted by the Home Office, you do not need to do anything yet. You’ll be able to set up access to your eVisa later in 2024.

There is more information about when eVisas are being introduced and what they’re replacing.

What you need to do

You will be asked to:

  • create a UKVI account
  • confirm your identity using the ‘UK Immigration ID Check’ app

This information will be used to link your eVisa to your UKVI account. You’ll get an email when you can access your eVisa in your account.

Before you start

You will need:

  • an email address and phone number
  • access to a smartphone
  • your BRP card (or a valid passport, and either your BRP number or your visa application number)

Helping someone else

You can help someone else to create their UKVI account, for example, your child or someone who cannot use the internet.

You can manage their account for them if you’re acting on their behalf, for example if you have power of attorney.

Get help

You can get help setting up access to your eVisa if you:

  • do not feel confident using a computer or mobile device
  • do not have internet access
  • do not have access to a device like a laptop or smart phone

You can only get this support if you’re in the UK.
