Biometric Residence Permits (BRPs) for sponsored pupils
ISC schools will be able to receive BRPs on behalf of their pupils
Sponsor schools will be aware that the Home Office has introduced BRPs for all non-EEA nationals applying for permission to enter the United Kingdom for more than six months. ISC has been working with the Home Office to assist them in putting in place arrangements so that schools can receive BRPs on behalf of their sponsored pupils.
The Home Office has now agreed that all ISC schools will have the option of receiving BRPs on behalf of their pupils provided certain security arrangements are complied with. This means that the BRPs would be sent directly to School. The Home Office are in the process of finalising the security requirements and registration form and ISC will be sending out full details of how to opt in to receiving BRPs to schools shortly.
Schools that do not wish to receive BRPs on behalf of pupils are welcome to proceed with using third party collection. ISC will be working with the Home Office to ensure that the requirements for third party collection are practical and are not too onerous for schools.
