Calling all UK immigrants and their dependents! Get ready for a digital upgrade: Britain is ditching physical immigration documents like BRPs and BRCs in favor of eVisas by 2025. But what does this mean for you? breaks it down!

Goodbye Plastic, Hello Digital:

Currently, you rely on your BRP card to prove your immigration status. But soon, that’ll be a thing of the past. eVisas, similar to ePassports, will securely store your information online. No more waiting for cards, no more losing them!

Following the Trend:

Britain’s not the first to embrace digital borders. Developed nations like Australia already use eVisas. This move aims to streamline the system and boost security.

But Wait, Are There Downsides?

Sure, physical cards have their advantages, like offline verification. But eVisas offer convenience and cost savings. Plus, they’re linked to your biometrics for ultimate security.

What Now?

Don’t worry, you don’t need to do anything yet. Existing BRP holders will be able to register for a UKVI account and access their eVisa this year. Stay tuned to for updates.

The Future of Immigration:

eVisas are just one step in Britain’s digital border transformation. The government plans to trial contactless entry using facial recognition, showcasing their commitment to innovation and efficiency.


This is a gradual transition. Until 2025, the current BRP renewal and replacement process remains unchanged.
