Details

Use this form if you are already in the UK and have a stamp or sticker in your passport confirming your permission to be here for a limited time.

The form is to apply to transfer that permission, usually because you have a new passport. This is known as a transfer of conditions (TOC).

Your permission to be here (and that of any dependants who apply with you) will be transferred to a biometric residence permit.

You should read the TOC guidance notes before you apply.
