Change Of Name On BRP For Spouse Tier 4 Dependent Visa UK

Change Of Name On BRP For Spouse Tier 4 Dependent Visa UK

This is taking from an immigration board to show anyone out there with similar questions.

Hi all,

I am a sponsored tier 4 student, currently doing my PhD in the UK.

I changed my name to my husbands name after marriage in most of my documents including my Nigeria passport, except my BRP.

My husband is set to apply for a tier 4 dependent Visa and then I came across the rule that once there’s a change of name,

one should inform the home office of this change within three months.

And I am only aware of this now.

It’s not three months yet since I changed my name , it’s just a month and some days.

Please would this affect my husband’s application?

Do I need to include a covering letter that I would change the name on my BRP after a decision has been made on his application?

(and since it’s not three months yet from the date of name change ).

Please I need advice on this.

Thank you very much in advance

Response – 

They are separate matters. There is a paper form for reporting your change of name to the Home Office:

Separately, he applies for a PBS Dependant visa in the normal way.
