Hi,I am in the UK with a Tier-2 visa. Recently, I applied for a new Tier-2 visa (PBS) since I found a new job (i.e. change of sponsor).
I renewed my passport in January 2022 and unfortunately, I forgot to inform the local police to update my PRC (Police Registration Certificate).
I wonder whether Home Office will reject my visa due to that terrible mistake.
I’ve booked an appointment at the police station for updating my PRC tomorrow.
I can upload a new document using the account that I applied for Home Office. Do you think it is a good idea to upload the new PRC if the police issue a new PRC?
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?
Customer: I am in the UK / Nationality: Iranian My visa is on process
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about the visa?
Customer: No
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I don't think so

Further to your question I am an immigration solicitor and will be assisting you with your question today

Kindly note that they will not refuse the visa just for that reason. However, please do update the address as soon as possible
