hi. I had my appointment at the hone office 8 days ago but have not received my brp card yet. I'd like to travel abroad this weekend and was wonderig if somebody has managed to enter the uk without the brp card. I only have the approval letter and a letter from my employer. I had a tier 2 for 3 years, changed job and am now waiting for the new brp to arrive.

any help is greatly appreciated... thanks

You should not travel abroad until you get your BRP.
Rules have changed and if you leave without your BRP, you now have to apply for and get replacement BRP visa abroad before returning to UK.

Thanks! Can you explain the rule change you mention? What would happen if I show up at the border with the letters? My new employer seems confident it would work, but I'm sceptical.

Wouldn't want that.

Do you know if sending the BRP by courier abroad is safe? Are there issues with having it pass customs?

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Where are you sending it to? Using reputable courier company, it should be safe.
