I entered the UK using my passport and BRP card an received a visitor stamp (6 months) with my BRP number written on it. Should I be worried? Should I contact anyone?

My BRP is valid for 2 more years.

  • For starters, I am not a visitor. I live here. Why would I receive a visitor stamp?

    Does the stamp contain the wording "Leave to enter for six months: Employment and recourse to public funds prohibited." on top of the rectangular box with rounded corners, or just the rectangular box?

  • @B.Liu It does! Although a bit faded.

    What did the Immigration Officer say when you asked them why they stamped your entry like this?

I just called them and was informed that as long as the BRP number is on top of the stamped part then everything is okay.
