Please note until further notice there will be no police registrations due to the restrictions imposed because of the Corona virus.



Police pledge

Norfolk Constabulary's promise to the public is captured in its Pledge Statement:

We will enhance the quality of life for everyone in Norfolk by striving to continually:

  • improve people's confidence in us
  • increase the satisfaction of our customers, achieving the outcomes that matter
  • reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and the fear of crime.


Requirement to register with the Police

All those persons required to  undertake Police registration will from 1 September 2017  be required to complete the overseas_visitor_registration_form.docx.

You will be required to download this form and complete it electronically, print it out and bring it with you to your Police registration appointment. Failure to do so will mean you will not be able to do your Police registration.

This form applies only to those persons who have not done Police registration previously, not those who already have Police registration certificates nor those persons wishing to update a previously issued Police registration certificate, the updating procedure will remain the same.

You will still be required to bring a second passport size photograph, payment of £34, proof of address and CAS, together with your passport and BRP card or visa (whichever you are in possession of).  


Locations to register

The Nationalities Clerk for Police Registration is located at the Operations and Communications Centre (OCC), Wymondham, NR18 0WW, Norfolk

The clerk is available, by appointment only and the majority of the appointments will normally take place at the UEA 

For non-UEA students, please email [email protected]

If a foreign national attends this location on a Tuesday without an appointment, there can be no guarantee the nationality clerk would be in attendance.

Please note, telephone appointments can only be made on these days. It may be easier to email [email protected] 

To make an appointment directly please use the attached link.


A foreign national who attends at any other police station or site in the force area to register with the police (including any subsequent changes to their personal circumstances or details) will be directed to contact the Operations and Communications Centre "registration location" as listed above.
