Hi all, I am on a spouse visa. I am under the impression that I have to report the change of my address. However, I went on the link on the gov.uk site and it doesn't work! I have gone on my MAC, my husband's Windows, my iPad and iPhone and I still can't reach it!

Out of frustration, I tried to call the number given on the bottom of the page for UKVI contact centre, but every option goes to the lady telling you to visit their page and then ended the call. Anyone could help out see if the link works for them, and if someone could advise me of what do I do? :mad::(

There's a form to fill in here.
I understand there is a form, but it also states that the form is for:
"Fill in the change of circumstances form if both of these apply:
you have a work or study visa
you applied under the points-based system (Tiers 1, 2, 4 or 5)?

Also, it says the link is for change of address only, so it applies to my case?

Heya, just thought I'd let you know that I submitted my change of address with the above form. I did it about a week ago. Just got an email from the Home Office saying it has been successful. Thanks for your help once again! :rockon:

BRP change of address informing a bit late!

Hi,

My wife and I moved address back in August 2017, we have not informed the Home Office of the change of address in error.

What makes things a little complicated is that my wife can now apply for ILR now as she has reached her 5 year period.

My question is should we first inform the Home Office of the change of address before applying for ILR or should we apply for ILR.

Please help

Thanks

Shah

Congratulations MrsW2017,

Can I ask did you have to send a hard copy of evidence of your new address?

Thanks

Hi Hippoman. I also see there is another online form called the visa-address-update service gov uk (sorry I can't post links). Do you know which link is more appropriate?

Thanks!

We did the one you state.

I found out that the change of circumstances form is more for people who are divorcing mid visa etc.

There are a few responses about this on "whatdotheyknow" where the Home Office are compelled to respond and they all link to the visa address update.

We did it this way.
