Anyone who is in the UK on a visa has restricted permission to remain in the UK. It means you can stay in the UK for a limited period. For example, you could be in the UK holding a Spouse visa, Youth Mobility visa, or Skilled Worker visa.
Before moving on, you should know that your permission to remain in the UK ends after your BRP expires.
You have to apply for an extension of your existing visa or switch to another immigration category before your BRP expires if you want to continue staying in the UK. In the case of the approval of your new application, you may be given a new BRP or e-visa status.
On the other hand, you don’t have to take any steps if your biometric residence permit (BRP) expires on 31 December 2024. This is because the Home Office plans to switch to a completely online system from 1 January 2025 for proving immigration and right-to-work status. As a result, the authorities are issuing BRPs with an expiry date of 31 December 2024. More guidance is expected to come in early 2024.
