To either create a NEW REGISTRATION, report a TRANSFER to South Yorkshire Police from another Force area, or just have CHANGE OF DETAILS, you must firstly create an account online.
It should take around 10-15 minutes to complete. You will need a valid email address such as a gmail – but please, students especially, do not use a QQ.com email address, as we have had a lot of problems with these.
You will need to enter personal information such as passport and visa details, your UK and home addresses as well as what you are doing in the UK.
If you are a STUDENT (with a Tier 4 or Short Term Student Visa) please choose the “Student” option so you will be able to enter your study details.
If you are an EMPLOYEE (With a Tier 2 or Tier 5 visa) please choose the “Employee” option, so you can state your occupation and place of work/research.
If you are a DEPENDANT or SELF-EMPLOYED (Turkish Business Person included) please choose the “NON EMPLOYEE” option. This will also include the T1 Entrepreneur visa. Please provide details of any company you have created in the Additional Information section.
You will also be required to upload a passport style photo of yourself – head and shoulders . A “selfie” is usually accepted.
If you are MARRIED we do require your spouse’s details – name, date of birth, date of marriage and passport number
However, if your spouse is in the UK and also has the requirement to register with police, they must also create their own account with their own email address.
If you are are TRANSFERRING from another area in the UK to live in South Yorkshire and already have a Police Registration Certificate to update, please choose the TRANSFER option. You will be required to provide your current UK address as well as the previous address before you moved as well as passport and visa details.
When you have successfully created your account having entered seven or eight pages of information as well as your photo, you will be sent a link to book an appointment to complete the registration process.
If you are a NEW REGISTRATION, please choose from the NEW REGISTRATION ONLY venues 1,2,3 or 4. Appointments are usually available Monday to Friday and take around 15 minutes to complete.
If you are a TRANSFER and only need to have your Police Registration Certificate updated please choose the CHANGE OF DETAILS ONLY venue 1.
If you have previously had a Police Registration Certificate but is has been lost or stolen please create an account if you do not already have one and book an appointment at one of the NEW REGISTRATION venues. The same applies if you have already got a Police Registration Certificate but need a REPLACEMENT due to the boxes being full.
If you have LOST your Police Registration Certificate, then there will be a further £34.00 to pay.
If your Police Registration Certificate is FULL and a REPLACEMENT is required, you will be issued one FREE OF CHARGE.
