LIFE IN THE UK: How to update address of a Spouse Visa holder

Moving house is tedious and updating contact details can add some stress. What's good in the UK is you can do mostly online. I listed those agencies that needed to inform of our change of address when you move house from within the UK:



1. Biometrics Residence Permit (BRP) .  It can be done online here ,  fill-up the online form and they will email an acknowledgement after successfully submitted the details, after few days they will email again confirming your records have been updated. 

2. HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) . Updating your details to HMRC will also update your National Insurance Number, tax credits, benefits, and pension services.

3. You bank provider.

4. Change your Driving/Provisional License online here
5. Vehicle's log book (V5C)  if you are the registered keeper. More details

6. Your work, if you are working. Mostly you can change it on your work online account. 

7. Council Tax. I did mine online, at the City of Edinburgh Council's website , you can check your council's website for more information. 

8. Child/Children's bank provider. Our bank provider doesn't accept online change of address for child's account, I posted ours. You can contact you bank on how to do it.

9. Dental and Medical Practise.


             Don't forget, if you have:

1. Life Insurance

2. Car Insurance

3. House Insurance

4. Work Pension

5. Car Breakdown Provider

6. Loan Provider

7. Phone Provider


- You might inform as well your Electric and Heating provider. 

Hope I didn't forget something, if you know one , please drop in the comment box. Thank you! Enjoy the change !

  1. Wow, I had no idea that it was this extensive, but it's good to know that everything is online. It definitely makes things a lot easier. While I'm not in the UK, I have a few old friends who are, so I'll pass this along to them if they ever need it.

  21. I agree, changing address is sometimes stressful, and tedious. I did mine here in Victoria, where we change our (street) address, and it gives me headache. But we need to do it.
