Upload your Visa Sticker (Vignette), Stamp or Boarding Pass

Last Update on: 18/08/2022

Use this page to upload a copy of the visa sticker (also called a vignette) in your passport. It should include the ink date stamp you received from a Border Officer when you entered the UK, for example at the airport.

If you did not receive an ink dated stamp when you entered the UK, you must upload other evidence of your arrival in the UK, such as your boarding pass or travel ticket.
