Update your UKVI account details

To sign in and update your UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) account, you’ll need:

  • your identity document - your passport, national identity card, or biometric residence card or permit
  • access to your phone or email address - you’ll get a security code to confirm your identity

To sign in, use the identity document and contact details you gave when you applied, unless you have already used this service to update them.

If you’re updating your name, date of birth or nationality, you’ll also need an identity document that proves the change is needed.

You cannot use this service to update a UKVI account if you’re registered in the account as a ‘helper’. Only the person who applied can make changes.

Contact UKVI if you cannot get into your account.

After you’ve updated your UKVI account

This service will only update the details in your UKVI account, not things like a biometric residence permit or a citizenship application, for example.

You’ll be told what else you need to do after you update your UKVI account.
