How to sign in to continue your visa application

If you’ve started a UK visa application, you can sign back in to continue your application.

To sign back in:

  1. Find your registration email.

  2. Follow the link in the email.

  3. Enter your sign in details.

Find your registration email

Your registration email will be from UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI). It’s sent to the email address you entered in your visa application.

The email subject line will be either:

  • UK visa application: sign in details
  • One time code

You’ll find the sign in link in the email.

If you cannot find the email in your inbox, check your junk or spam folder.

Enter your sign in details

After you follow the link in your email, you will be prompted to enter either:

  • your password, if you created one
  • details from the identity document you used in your application (passport, national identity card, or biometric residence card or permit) and your date of birth

If you created a password

Your password will be at least 10 characters long and contain at least 3 of the following:

  • an uppercase letter
  • a lowercase letter
  • a number
  • a symbol

If you’ve forgotten your password there’s a link to reset it.

When you cannot sign in

You can only sign in if you’ve started a visa application and entered your email address.

You may not be able to sign in if you’ve not returned to your application for over 10 weeks.
