View and prove your immigration status

18 April 2024

The UKVI account allows users to view and prove their immigration status online, update personal details, and check their rights in the UK. If access issues arise, users can recover their account by calling the UK Visas and Immigration phone line.

A UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) account is a valuable tool for eligible users. It allows them to view and prove their immigration status online. This can be particularly useful when you need to provide proof of your status to employers or higher education providers.

The UKVI account is not just for viewing your immigration status. It also serves as a platform for updating personal details. Moreover, it provides a convenient way to check what rights you have in the UK. These rights could include the right to work, rent, or claim benefits.

There are several ways you might have a UKVI account. One way is if you have ever applied to the EU Settlement Scheme. Another way is if you have used the ‘UK Immigration: ID Check’ app to prove your identity when applying for a visa. You might also have created one when applying for a visa, in which case you would have received a UKVI account confirmation email. Lastly, you might have created one to get access to an eVisa, an online record of your immigration status. If this is the case, you would have received an email about this.

In case you are unable to access your account, there is a recovery process in place. You will need to recover your UK Visas and Immigration Account by calling the UK Visas and Immigration phone line on 0300 790 6268.

It’s important to note that the UKVI account is a secure and confidential way to manage your immigration status. It’s designed to make the process of living, working, or studying in the UK as smooth as possible. The UKVI account is just one of the many ways the UK government is working to streamline immigration processes and make them more user-friendly. So, whether you’re a student, a worker, or a permanent resident, the UKVI account is a resource designed to help you navigate your immigration journey in the UK. Remember, if you ever have any issues with your account, help is just a phone call away.
