I-131, Application for Travel Document

Alert:  Beginning July 1, 2022, we will issue a new travel authorization document to Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries: Form I-512T, Authorization for Travel by a Noncitizen to the United States, at our discretion if we find the beneficiary merits this authorization. We will no longer issue advance parole documents as evidence of our prior authorization for a TPS beneficiary to be permitted to reenter the United States if the beneficiary travels outside the United States.

Beginning July 1, 2022, we will issue a new travel authorization document to Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries: Form I-512T, Authorization for Travel by a Noncitizen to the United States, at our discretion if we find the beneficiary merits this authorization. We will no longer issue advance parole documents as evidence of our prior authorization for a TPS beneficiary to be permitted to reenter the United States if the beneficiary travels outside the United States.

If you are a TPS beneficiary with an existing, unexpired advance parole document, you may continue to travel and seek reentry  to the United States after a trip outside the United States through the period of validity printed on your advance parole document.

If you are a TPS beneficiary applying for a new travel authorization document, you should continue to use Form I-131, Application for Travel Document. If you have a pending Form I-131, you do not need to file a new application.

We will continue to issue advance parole documents to noncitizens with pending initial applications for TPS (Form I-821).

TPS beneficiaries and individuals with pending initial TPS applications should carefully read the Form I-131 Instructions which contain warnings about certain risks an individual may face if they are outside of the United States while USCIS is considering their TPS reregistration or initial application, such as missing important request for evidence or other notices or being denied TPS while outside the United States.  

ALERT: Court decisions regarding DACA.

On Sept. 13, 2023, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas issued a decision finding the DACA Final Rule unlawful and expanding the original July 16, 2021 injunction and order of vacatur to cover the Final Rule. However, the court maintained a partial stay of the order for “all DACA recipients who received their initial DACA status prior to July 16, 2021.” See the Memorandum and Order (PDF, 1.35 MB)  and Supplemental Order of Injunction (PDF, 72.53 KB) .

Accordingly, current grants of DACA and related Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) remain valid until they expire, unless individually terminated.  In accordance with this decision, USCIS will continue to accept and process DACA renewal requests and accompanying applications for employment authorization under the DACA regulations at 8 CFR 236.22 and 236.23, as it has since October 31, 2022. We will also continue to accept initial DACA requests, but in accordance with the District Court’s order, we will not process initial DACA requests. 

Current valid grants of DACA and related EADs will continue to be recognized as valid under the Final Rule. This means that individuals with DACA and related EADs do not have to submit a request for DACA or employment authorization until the appropriate time to seek renewal.

Please see the  DACA Litigation Information Page  for important updates and information related to court rulings on the DACA policy.

Use this form to apply for a reentry permit, refugee travel document, TPS travel authorization document, advance parole document (including parole into the United States for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit), or advance permission to travel for Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) long-term residents.

If you file this form to request an advance parole document, and then you leave the United States without having an advance parole document that is valid for the entire time you are outside the United States, we will consider your Form I-131 abandoned.

If you file this form to request an advance permission to travel for CNMI long-term residents document, and you leave the CNMI without having an advance permission travel document, your status will automatically terminate.

Home Office Travel Documents

home office travel documents

What is a Home Office Travel Document?

A Home Office travel document is a document that allows non-UK nationals to travel outside the UK if they cannot use or obtain a passport from their own country. A person can only apply for a Home Office travel document in certain special circumstances.

Who is eligible?

In order to be eligible to apply for a Home Office travel document, a person must be living in the UK for one of the following reasons:

(i) they have permission to stay as a refugee or stateless person; (ii) they have humanitarian protection for a limited time after a failed asylum application; (iii) they have discretionary leave for a limited time after a failed asylum application; or (iv) they have indefinite leave to remain.

What are the different types of travel documents?

There are four different types of travel documents that a person can apply for, depending on their circumstances and their status in the UK:

1) If a person is a refugee, they can apply for a convention travel document; 2) If a person is stateless, they can apply for a stateless person’s document; 3) If a person is a non-UK citizen that wants to leave the UK and not come back, they can apply for a one-way document (also known as an IS137); 4) If a person has been refused a passport by their own country’s national authorities, they can apply for a certificate of travel.

It is important to note that a person must show that they have formally applied for and been unreasonably refused a passport by authorities in their country. People who have permission to be in the UK as a refugee or stateless person are exempt from this condition.

Applying for a Travel Document:

A person can apply for a travel document online or by post. If a person chooses to apply by post, they must fill in form TD112 BRP and send it to the Home Office. The form states that certain documents must be submitted alongside the application. All submitted documents must be original documents, not photocopies. Failure to provide the original documents will delay the application and may result in its refusal.

The applicant will also need to apply for a biometric residence permit (BRP) if they don’t already have one that’s up to date, as it is part of the travel document application. This is not required if a person is applying for a one-way document. Additionally, all existing non-biometric travel documents can continue to be used until they expire.

It is important to note that some countries will not accept a travel document if a person has less than 6 months’ leave to remain in the UK on the date they travel. The applicant should check that they meet the requirements of the country they are travelling to.

If an applicant’s family is applying at the same time, all postal applications should be sent in one envelope so that they can be dealt with together. A separate application and payment must be made for each person, whether it is online or by post. A person can also apply for a new travel document using form TD112 BRP if their previous document has filled up or expired.

What are the costs?

All applicants are required to pay a non-refundable fee when they send their application to the home office. We have provided an overview of this below. Please note this is separate from the fee we will charge to assist with such an application. The fee an applicant must pay depends on the type of travel document they are applying for and whether they are an adult or child:

Home Office travel documents and visa free countries

Tell Us What You Think?  

Under the 1951 UN Convention Refugee Travel Document (blue) is issued by the United Kingdom to a refugee who has been granted asylum in the UK. If someone has been recognised as a refugee then they can apply for a travel document under the 1951 refugee Convention, which is a blue passport-sized document. Information about applying for this travel document is available  on the UK government website .

The Refugee Travel Document Normally is normally issued for up to 10 years for adults and for up to 5 years for children, or in line with limited leave. It also may be issued with a shorter validity if considered appropriate.

Travel documents are normally valid for all countries other than the country asylum is claimed from and/or the country of origin.

Countries that allow visa-free travel on Refugee Travel document

Countries that do not allow entry with refugee travel document.

UAE – Dubai

Qatar – Doha

Stateless person’s travel document

A stateless person may apply for a travel document under 1954 United Nations Convention relating to Stateless Persons. Information about applying for this travel document is available  on the UK government website . For more information on statelessness, see our  fact sheet on statelessness .

The travel document is normally valid for up to 5 years (children) or 10 years (adults) or in line with the leave granted. The stateless travel document is normally valid for all countries.

Certificate of Travel

Certificates of Travel may be issued to individuals who:

  • are permanently resident in the United Kingdom, or
  • have been granted Humanitarian Protection (HP) or Discretionary Leave (DL) to enter or remain in the UK for a limited period, following an unsuccessful asylum application  and  can provide documentary evidence that they have been formally and unreasonably refused a passport by their country of origin.

The certificate of travel is normally valid for up to 5 years or for the length of leave the individual has. The Home Office guidance states that the certificate of travel is normally valid for all countries but there were previously issues with the acceptance of the document in a number of countries, including many European ones. It is recommended that a particular country’s rules should be checked before applying for such a document and travelling to that country.

However, if an individual stay outside of the UK for a period of more than 2 years, that leave to remain (whether indefinite or limited) will lapse. The leave to remain will not lapse if someone comes back and left again during the two-year period – it must be continuous for the leave to lapse.

How to Apply for Travel Documents in the UK

If you live in the UK but aren't a British citizen and can't get a passport from your home country, you might be able to get travel documents from the British Home Office if you need to travel outside the country. Generally, you're only eligible for travel documents if you're staying in the UK as a refugee or stateless person, or if you're settled in the UK permanently (what the Home Office calls "indefinite leave to remain"). You can apply for travel documents online through the Home Office, but you have to mail the completed application along with supporting documentation. If you don't have a biometric residence permit (BRP), you'll need to apply for one of those when you apply for your travel document. [1] X Trustworthy Source Official UK government website Official website for the public sector of the UK government Go to source

Choosing the Right Travel Document

Step 1 Apply for a 1951 UN Convention travel document if you are a refugee.

  • This travel document is typically valid for up to 10 years, depending on the validity of your biometric residence permit (BRP). You can travel to any country except your country of origin.

Step 2 Use a 1954 UN Convention travel document if you are

  • Stateless travel documents are usually valid for 10 years, although they might be issued with a shorter validity depending on your situation. You can typically travel to any and all countries.
  • You're only considered stateless if you are not recognized as a citizen of any country. Some refugees are stateless, but not all. If you're not sure if you've been officially recognized as stateless, you probably haven't. Fewer than 100 people in the UK have been recognized as stateless since the official determination procedure was started in 2014. [4] X Research source

Step 3 Try a Certificate of Travel (COT) if you aren't a refugee or stateless person.

  • To get this documentation, apply for a passport using your home country's usual process. When your application is denied, save the original letter you get back from your home country.
  • You also need to show why the denial was unreasonable. The Home Office considers a denial reasonable if, for example, you have a criminal record in your home country or did not provide enough evidence to confirm your identity.
  • If you are granted a COT, it will typically have 5 years of validity. You can travel to any country with this document except for your country of origin.

Step 4 Get a one-way travel document if you want to leave the UK permanently.

  • While you do need to provide documentation to confirm your identity, you don't need to apply for a BRP to use this type of travel document.
  • This document is issued to any non-British citizen in the UK who doesn't have a passport and wants to leave the country. It can only be used for one journey out of the country and is valid for a year, although it's generally intended to be used immediately. [7] X Research source
  • One-way travel documents are typically issued for travel to a specified country. If you have to travel through one country to get to your destination country, that country will also be listed on your document.

Filling out Your Application

Step 1 Visit the Visas and Immigration website to start your application.

  • After you provide your location, you'll be asked to select which type of travel document you want to apply for. If you're not sure, click on the question so see who qualifies for each type.

Tip: If you don't feel comfortable using a computer or do not have internet access, you can get help over the phone by calling 03333 445 675. This phone line is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Step 2 Enter your answers to the questions on the application.

  • If you're applying for a one-way travel document, your document will only be valid for travel to the country you specified. However, all other travel documents are typically valid for travel to any country, except your country of origin or the country from which you sought asylum.
  • If you're applying for a COT, you'll also need to discuss your process of applying for a passport from your country of origin and the reason your application for a passport was denied.

Tip: If members of your family are also applying for travel documents at the same time, you each have to apply online and pay your fees separately.

Step 3 Fill out the BRP portion of the application if you don't have a BRP.

  • The online application will ask you if you have a BRP. If you do, simply answer "yes." If you answer "no," the BRP application will come up for you to fill out.
  • You will have to provide a digital photo and digital fingerprints along with your signature for your BRP. You can get these done at any government service and support center or post office branch. As of January 2020, the fee is £19.20 for biometrics. [11] X Trustworthy Source Official UK government website Official website for the public sector of the UK government Go to source

Warning: If you already have a BRP but need to amend or replace it, you must do this before you apply for your travel document. You can't use the application included with the travel document application.

Step 4 Pay your application fees online to complete your application.

  • Refugee and stateless person's travel documents are £75 for adults, £49 for children under 15, and £0 if you were born before September 1, 1929.
  • One-way travel documents are £75 for all adults (regardless of age) and £49 for children under 15.
  • A COT is £280 for all adults (regardless of age) and £141 for children under 15.

Submitting Your Application

Step 1 Gather original documents to support your application.

  • If you're applying for a travel document as a refugee or stateless person, you'll need the British court order or certificate that shows you've been officially recognized as a refugee or stateless person, as well as your BRP.
  • If you're applying for a COT, you need documents that prove that you applied for a passport from your home country and that application was unreasonably denied. This might include a letter from your home country's immigration authority or a copy of your passport application. A COT typically requires the most documentation.

Tip: Make a photocopy of your BRP to send with your application — do not send your original BRP. All other documents must be originals.

Step 2 Get documents translated if they aren't in English.

  • There are many translation companies in the UK that offer professional translation services. You can find these companies with a quick internet search. You might also use the search engine provided by the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, a professional association of translators. Go to https://www.iti.org.uk/component/itisearch/?view=translators to find a translator who is a member of the association.

Step 3 Print your application and sign the declaration in black ink.

  • Your signature will be scanned and digitally included on your travel documents.
  • After you've signed your declaration page, make a photocopy of your entire application so you have it for your records.

Step 4 Email or fax evidence to support a priority request.

  • Scan the document and email it to [email protected] or fax it to 020 8196 0109.
  • You still must include the paper originals of any documents you fax or email in your package that you send to the Home Office.

Step 5 Send your package using Royal Mail Signed For service.

  • Send your documents to: Travel Documents Section UK Visas and Immigration Lunar House 40 Wellesley Road Croydon CR9 2BY
  • After verifying the information in your application, the Home Office returns documents that don't need to be kept with your application. If you want these documents returned to you by Special Delivery, include a prepaid Special Delivery envelope with your package.
  • If you realize after you've sent your package that you left out a document, don't send it separately. Instead, wait to hear back from the Home Office. They will send you a letter to request any documents that are missing from your application package.

Step 6 Wait for your travel document to arrive.

  • It typically takes 3 to 4 months for the Home Office to process an application for a travel document. [19] X Research source

Step 7 Write to the home office if you've waited longer than 14 weeks.

  • If you're writing a physical letter, mail it to: Travel Documents Section UK Visas and Immigration Lunar House 40 Wellesley Road Croydon CR9 2BY
  • You can also send an email to [email protected].

Expert Q&A

  • Before you travel, check with the embassy or consulate of the country you want to visit and make sure your travel documents will be accepted at the border. You also may need a visa.

  • Last updated: 23rd October 2019

The Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) is a document given to non-UK nationals and their dependents that is usually applied for as part of a UK visa or immigration application. It can be used as a form of identification and is proof of the holder’s right to stay, work or study in the UK.

This article covers:

What is a brp, who needs a brp, do children need a brp, what information will the card show, how do you apply for a brp, how long is brp processing, how much is a brp, how long does the biometric residence card last.

  • What if there is an error on my card ?

Replacing a lost or stolen BRP

I have ilr, do i need a brp.

As a foreign national in the UK, the BRP will provide you with both a reliable form of identification and evidence of your immigration status. The BRP also confirms your right to claim for any public services or benefits that you may be eligible for.

The BRP is a small card, similar to a UK drivers’ licence, that holds your biographic details, including your name, gender, nationality, date and place of birth. It will also include a scan of your fingerprints, a digital image of your face and a digital copy of your signature.

The card will also detail your UK immigration status, stating the date when your leave expires, as well as any other restrictions placed on your leave to remain in the UK.

Foreign nationals from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland will require a BRP in the following circumstances:

  • When you apply to come to the UK for longer than 6 months
  • When you extend your visa to longer than 6 months
  • When you apply to settle in the UK
  • When you transfer your visa to a new passport
  • When you apply for certain Home Office travel documents

Where you are required to have a BRP, this will be stated on your visa or immigration application form. In circumstances where a BRP is not required, you will instead receive a vignette inside your passport.

Applicants under the age of 16 are still required to enrol their biometric information.

Under 16’s, must give a scan of their fingerprints and a photograph of their face, but they will not need to provide a signature. For children age under the age of 6, they will only need to provide a photograph.

Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or someone aged 18 or over who has legal responsibility for them.

When a document is referred to as biometric it means it has embedded information in it that can be used to authenticate the identity of the holder.

You will need to give some biometric information to be included in your BRP. You will be asked to provide a digital facial image and your fingerprints. The process is a quick digital process (no mess or ink) and you will not be required to take off a head-covering if you wear one for medical or religious reasons.

Your biometric information will be stored on a UK government database and managed in accordance with strict UK data protection laws.

Your card will contain personal information including your name, date and place of birth, fingerprints and photo, information regarding your visa and conditions of stay, confirmation of your access to public services and – depending on when it was issued – your national insurance number.

There are also a number of security features in the card. Made from polycarbonate material and containing an electronic chip to make it more secure against forgery, the BRP is designed to combat illegal working and reduce illegal immigration. The International Civil Aviation Organisation ‘chip inside’ symbol, found on the front of the permit above your image, a two-colour Ultraviolet design, and a unique permit number.

If a person is physically unable to provide biometric information – for example, if they have a disability or have no fingers or hands – this will be recorded on the database.

If you refuse to give biometric information, your immigration application will be rejected and it could lead to your deportation from the UK.

When submitting your visa or immigration application, you will not be required to make a separate application for a BRP. If your application is approved, you will automatically receive a BRP, assuming you have enrolled your biometric information.

You will be told where to enrol your information after you have applied. The location to attend will depend on whether you are making your application from within or outside the UK.

In the event that you are making an in-county application, you will either go to a UK Visa and Citizenship Application Services (UKVCAS) service point, a service and support centre or a post office branch. There will be a nominal fee of just £19.20.

If, on the other hand, you are applying from outside the UK, you will be asked to go to a visa application centre and the cost will already be included in your application fee.

How you receive your BRP will depend on whether you are making your application from within or outside the UK.

In the event that you applied from within the UK, your permit will be delivered to your home address, or the address provided in your visa or immigration application, by courier within 7 to 10 days of receiving your Home Office decision letter. If your BRP has not arrived by ten days after the decision letter, you will need to report it as missing to the Home Office.

If, on the other hand, you applied from outside the UK, you will be required to collect your BRP once you have arrived in the UK. You will be told in your decision letter where to collect the permit. This could be from a named post office branch, or from your UK sponsor if you selected this option when you submitted your application.

You must collect the BRP before the expiry date in your travel document or within ten days of reaching the UK, whichever is later. Failure to collect your BRP, or to collect within the specified timeframe, could result in a fine of up to £1,000.

If you are providing your biometric information in the UK there is a set fee of £19.20, if you are applying from outside the cost will be included in your application fee.

Your BRP will not only contain biometric and biographical information, it will also hold information relating to your immigration status, including the date when your leave to remain in the UK expires and any specific restrictions on your right to stay.

Your permit will be valid for the duration of your leave. Although you are not required to carry your BRP at all times, you must present it with your passport at the UK border if you are leaving or re-entering the UK. As such, you must ensure that your BRP remains valid.

In the event that you have been granted limited leave to enter or remain in the UK and wish to extend your stay, you will need to make a further application to the Home Office before your leave expires.

What if there is an error on my biometric residence card?

When you receive your BRP, it is entirely possible that it may contain an error. This could simply be a misspelling or it could be a mistake as to the length or conditions of your leave.

In the event that you made an in-country application, and you identify an error as to the length or conditions of your leave, you can seek what’s known as an administrative review.

Other more straightforward problems, such as a spelling mistake or even physical damage to your BRP, can be reported online. However, you will need to report any problems within 10 days of receipt of your BRP, or you may have to pay for a replacement card.

If your biometric residence permit is lost or stolen, you must report this to the Home Office and apply for a replacement. In the event that you do not seek a replacement within a period of three months, you risk being fined up to £1000 and could be made to leave the UK.

If your BRP is lost outside the UK, you must again report this, but you will need to apply for a replacement BRP visa. Although this will let you re-enter the UK, you will need to apply for a full replacement permit on your return. This costs £154 and will allow you to re-enter the UK.

If your BRP has expired and you have indefinite leave to remain, you can apply for a replacement online from within the UK. If your visa is also due to expire at the same time you must apply for the visa extension first and if successful you will automatically receive a BRP replacement.

There are many reasons why ILR holders opt to apply for the BRP. The permit allows for easier travel into the country as proof of indefinite status; it offers a recognisable documentary evidence of right to work in the UK and to access public benefits; and it is a more secure document with enhanced counter-fraud features compared with passport vignettes.

If you have permission from the Home Office to settle in the UK, known as ‘indefinite leave to remain’ (ILR), you can apply to transfer your ILR to a BRP by making a No Time Limits (NTL) application where:

  • You do not have documentary evidence of your ILR
  • You have lost your passport containing your ILR endorsement, or it has been stolen or expired.
  • You have changed your identity.

To be eligible for the NTL application, you will need to show you have valid ILR, that this status has not been lost through absence and that you continue to be eligible for ILR.

There is no restriction on when you can or should make an NTL application, provided your ILR status is valid.

Applications for NTL must be made in the UK on the NTL application form and require a fee. The application form must be completed online, and you will need to have your biometrics taken (fingerprints and photo).

The application fee for an NTL application is £229. You’ll get a decision within 6 months of attending your UKVCAS appointment.

If you need to get a BRP sooner you can select a priority service but you will have to pay an extra £800. With the priority service, you will get a decision by the end of the day if you have an appointment on a weekday or 2 working days after a weekend appointment.

If you have temporary leave to remain in the UK you can apply online as well. The cost, in this case, is £161 and you will receive a decision within 8 weeks. You can pay for a priority service as well.

If you are a Commonwealth citizen but do not have access to the relevant documents that prove your right to remain in the UK you could get a BRP under the Windrush Scheme.

2023 Wrapped: SSW’s Year in Review

Getting your passport back from the home office.

3 November 2021

When you submit a UK visa or settlement application to the Home Office, chances are you’ll need to provide supporting documentation such as your passport when you apply.

After a decision has been made on your application, the Home Office will return your documents to you. However, if you have sent your documents with your application and you need them back urgently, you may be able to ask for them to be returned.

How you do this depends on whether you submitted your application from inside or outside the UK, and the type of application you have made. In some cases, asking for your documents back may mean you need to cancel your application. You will be told if you have to do this when you make the request.

If you applied outside the UK

If you submitted your visa application from outside the UK, you should contact UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) to request your documents back.

You will not receive a refund if your application has been processed. You will have three months to collect your passport or travel document once you’ve been told it’s ready for collection. If you fail to collect your passport within the given timeframe, it will be returned to the authority that issues it.

If you applied in the UK

If you applied in the UK, you may be able to use the online return of documents form . If you are eligible to use the form, you will usually receive your documents back within 10 working days.

You cannot use the online form if:

  • You no longer have permission to stay in the UK
  • Your application to stay in the UK has been refused or rejected
  • You want to cancel your application to extend your stay in the UK because you now plan to leave
  • You have applied for asylum

If your application has been refused and you do not have permission to stay in the UK, you can contact the Voluntary Returns Service if you want to leave voluntarily or if you cannot use the online form. You will get your documents back at the airport.

Understand [ edit ]

Overlooking the confluence of the Amur and Ussuri Rivers, Khabarovsk is the second largest city in the Russian Far East , approaching 600,000 residents and growing. It is also the capital of both Khabarovsk Krai and the Far Eastern Federal District . Unlike Vladivostok, the city has never been closed to foreigners, and retains a distinct international feel, rare for the Russian provincial centers – a feeling propped up by an increasing Asian presence with arrivals from Asian countries now numbering over a million each year. In turn, Asians come here to experience a piece of Europe close to home, with the fortunate effect that the city is spending huge swaths of money renovating the city, in which old classical buildings were spared much of the destructive effects of the 1917-23 civil war, to provide its visitors with just that feeling. From a European's perspective, Soviet city planning has unmistakably taken its toll, but it is still far more attractive than your average Siberian city.

Climate [ edit ]

The climate is temperate and monsoonal, with a cold, dry winter and a hot and humid summer. The average temperature for a full year is just 2°C, but covers over wide span of monthly averages ranging from a bone chilling −20°C in January to a quite warm +21°C average in July. The city sees an average of 686 mm precipitation in a year, but unfortunately the lions' share falls in the warm summer months. The number of sunny days per year is 70, which is higher than Moscow's 54. Climate-wise, end of May - early June or end of August - early September are the best time for a visit.

Get in [ edit ]

By plane [ edit ], by train [ edit ].

  • 48.49659 135.07283 2 Khabarovsk railway station ( Habarovsk 1 ), Leningradskaya, 58 , ☏ +7 4212 38-39-40 . Khabarovsk station, listed as Habarovsk 1 in most train schedules, is a major stop on the Trans-Siberian Railway . There are several trains each day bound for Vladivostok (800 km) and Moscow (about 8500 km) along the main Trans-Siberian line. Other options include trains #386 or #035 to Blagoveshchensk , #325 for Tynda, #667э for Komsomolsk , #943э Vanino , all on the Baikal-Amur Mainline . Vanino is an interesting option as it allows ferry connections to Sakhalin and further on to Wakkanai in Japan – more details in the Russia to Japan via Sakhalin itinerary. The international trains are Khabarovsk- Harbin , ongoing twice a week and Khabarovsk- Pyongyang on special days.  

By boat [ edit ]

  • 48.46904 135.0581 3 River Port , Shevchenko 1 .  

If you want to go to places upstream on the Amur river, the Meteor speedboats will often be your transport of choice, but only during the summer when the river is navigable. However, in 2008, the water level in the river was at a historic low, so that the Meteor traffic had to be stopped. If Meteor traffic functions normally, you can go some 1,000 km downstream to the Ul'chi municipal district (rayon), a region mostly inhabited by indigenous Ul'chi people.

  • Fuyuan – In spring and summer there are daily hydrofoil services to Fuyuan in northeastern China , departing from the ferry terminal facing the Amur river.
  • Komsomolsk – If you are heading for the BAM line up north, an interesting option is to take a hydrofoil cruising up the Amur river to Komsomolsk (6 hours), and catch a train from there.

Get around [ edit ]

Map

The best thing to start with is to walk around the center of the city. Have a nice walk from Lenin Square to the Amur River via the main street, Muravieva-Amurski. You will find all sorts of shops and places to eat.

By tram [ edit ]

The city has a network of four tram lines (there is no line 3 or 4). The most useful section for visitors is the stretch of the network running from the main railway station along Amursky Boulevard, before making a left turn down Volochaevskaya St. (near the market), and crossing Muravyov-Amursky Street one block west of Lenina Square, it then continues south intersecting Lenina Street roughly at its halfway point, before a stop at the botanical gardens (Lines 1, 2 & 6). The remainder of the network mainly extends into the sleepy suburbs. Line 5 serves the North, Line 1 and 2 the South along Krasnorechenskaya St.

By bus [ edit ]

The electric trolleybuses also has a few useful sections for visitors, Line 1 runs between the Airport and Komsomolskaya Square (River promenade, Museum cluster) along Karla Marksa and Mureava Amursky streets.

The regular bus number 1, is a useful circle line. It starts at the Railway station, turns down Seryshev street (a block north of Amursky Boulevard) until it reaches the river park at Lenin Stadium. Turns down Komsomolskaya Street (and square) and runs south until Lenina Street. It then runs the entire length of Lenina street before north at the City History Museum and returns to the train station.

The Far Eastern Museums [ edit ]

There is a fantastic cluster of top notch museums along Shevchenko Street, just behind the tall blue-domed Church of Theotokos on Komsomolskaya Square towards the river and stadium. Not only are the museums some of the best in the far east, they also make their home in some impressive century-old buildings dating back to before the revolution. After a visit, the nice river promenade is just a short walk away, so you can wash all that new found knowledge away with some pivos in good company.

Tugged away just across the next street behind the military museum, you also find the Archeology Museum on Turgeneva street.

  • Beeline ( by Vympelcom ), ☏ +7 4212 64-90-64 .  
  • Megafon , toll-free: +7 800 333 0500 .  
  • MTS ( Mobile TeleSystems ), toll-free: +7 800 333 0890 .  
  • Skylink , Dzerzhiskogo, 4 ( Near Amur hotel. ), ☏ +7 4212 74-44-44 . The all-Russian CDMA operator, having less subscribers, than GSM operators, but popular for faster and cheaper mobile Internet service.  
  • Megafon , ☏ +7 800 333 0500 . new standart of mobile internet.  

Check roaming prices, especially for mobile Internet, before using any non-Russian SIM card. Some mobile connection standards are not supported in Russia , e.g. those for Japan and the United States .

If you're staying in Russia for a week or more, it's definitely worth it to buy a local SIM card, but be aware, that a passport is needed for that. The easiest way to refill a local mobile account is to use an ATM. Most ATMs have bilingual interfaces, allowing numerous kinds of payments, including those for mobile services by local operators. You can also do it through terminals spread all over the city - like Qiwi or mobile shops.

Guidance notes

Biometric residence permits (BRPs) and biometric residence cards (BRCs): General information for completion of Knowing Your Customer (KYC) checks.

September 2018

When making an application for a UK bank account, customers may provide proof of identity from a range of options that include:

  • current EU/EEA passport, photo driving licence or identity card
  • all other current signed passports, with a valid UK Visa where applicable
  • Home Office Immigration Status Document accompanied by proof of right to reside
  • biometric residence permit (BRP) or biometric residence card (BRC)

This guidance offers information to account providers about BRPs and BRCs.

What are biometric residence permits and biometric residence cards?

The BRP and BRC hold a customer’s biographic details (name, date and place of birth) and biometric information (facial image and fingerprints), and shows their immigration status and entitlements while they remain in the UK. BRPs are titled ‘Residence Permit’ or ‘Short Stay Permit’ and BRCs are titled ‘Residence Card’, ‘Permanent Residence Card’ or ‘Derivative Residence Card’.

Example BRP showing a customer’s biographic details (name, date and place of birth), biometric information (facial image and fingerprints), immigration status and entitlements while they remain in the UK.

Who may apply?

Foreign nationals from outside the European Economic Area making certain applications to the Home Office have to apply for a BRP.

Foreign nationals from outside the European Economic Area who are able to live and work in the UK based on rights derived from EU law may apply for a BRC.

Successful applicants receive a biometric residence permit as evidence of their status in the United Kingdom.

How can a BRP or BRC be used?

BRPs and BRCs are evidence of the holder’s right to stay in the United Kingdom, and show the conditions of a customer’s stay. It enables him/her to confirm his/her identity as part of the process for opening a bank account in the UK and rights to study and/or work here, and to access public services. For some immigration categories, the National Insurance Number will appear in the remarks on the reverse of the document.

Some foreign nationals, such as refugees, will only hold a BRP as evidence of their identity and status in the UK and will not be able to produce any other form of identity document. Others will have alternative forms of ID – for example, a passport or national identity card.

Biometric residence permits near to the end date?

If a customer has limited leave to enter or remain and wishes to remain in the United Kingdom, he/she will need to make a further application to the Home Office before the leave expires.

Design of the biometric residence permit

The biometric residence permit is a standard credit card size (86mm x 54mm) and looks similar to those issued by some other EU countries. The permit is made from polycarbonate and contains a chip to make it more secure against forgery and abuse.

Holder’s name

Valid until – the date the permit expires. This date is at the end of the time the holder is allowed to stay; or five or 10 years if the holder has been given permission to settle in the UK (known as indefinite leave to remain)

Place and date of issue – this is the UK followed by the date the permit was issued

Type of permit – this is the immigration category the holder is in (for example, STUDENT)

Remarks – these are the immigration entitlements for the length of the holder’s stay, and may continue on the back of the permit

12. Holder’s nationality

13. Remarks – this is a continuation of immigration entitlements for the length of time of the holder’s stay (see 6 above). In appropriate cases, the National Insurance Number will appear here.

14. Machine readable zone (MRZ) – this area allows information printed on the permit to be read quickly by machine.

Checking the BRP or BRC

The following advice sets out how you can manually check a BRP or a BRC. If a customer provides a BRP or a BRC as proof of identity, you must take reasonable steps, including the following, when checking the document:

Look at the document carefully

  • Is it clean and in good condition? Does it look tampered with?
  • Check that relevant expiry dates have not passed.

Check the permit number

  • This is on the front of the permit in the top right-hand corner.
  • It should start with 2 letters. The third character in the permit number can be ‘X’ or a digit. The last 6 characters will be digits. The permit number should not be raised.

Check the holder’s Image

  • The holder’s image will always be in grey-scale.
  • Check that it matches the person presenting it to you.

Check the biographical details (name, date of birth, etc)

  • Check that they match the details of the person presenting it to you.
  • Check the dates of birth listed so that you are satisfied these are consistent with the appearance of your customer.

Check the ‘tactile feature’ (on the back)

  • The back has a raised design incorporating the four national flowers of the United Kingdom.
  • The design can be seen by shining a light across the permit.
  • You can also feel the raised design by running your finger over it.

Feel the permit

  • It should feel thicker than a driving licence.
  • The permit will have a distinctive sound when flicked.
  • The permit should not be bent or folded.

Check the holder’s immigration conditions

These are shown on both the front and the back of the permit. For example, it might confirm that an individual has no right to work or can only work a limited number of hours per week.

Security features

The International Civil Aviation Organisation ‘chip inside’ symbol, found on the front of the permit above the holder’s image, is printed using Optically Variable Ink (OVI). As the permit is tilted, the OVI shifts colour depending on the angle of viewing, whilst displaying a metallic quality.

Two colour ultraviolet design – the angle of the design is different on the front and back.

Dynaprint – from one angle, the ‘valid until’ date and the letter ‘U’ are visible; tilting the permit replaces these with a photograph of the holder and the letter ‘K’.

The permit number is unique.

Kinegramᵀᴹ – various designs can be seen as the permit is tilted, showing a distinctive colour change and large amount of fine detail.

Image showing BRP with Kinegram feature: various designs can be seen as the  permit is tilted, showing a distinctive colour change  and large amount of fine detail.

Physical checks can also be performed on the BRP and BRC. As they are made entirely from polycarbonate, they will have a distinctive sound when flicked, and the holder’s image will always be in grey-scale. The permit should not be bent or folded, as this is likely to cause it to break. Contact with water should be avoided to prevent damage to the chip.

Identity document validation technology is available that will assist you to check BRPs and BRCs electronically.
