What to do if your entry clearance vignette has expired

Entry clearance vignettes allow holders of UK residence visas to enter the country and collect their biometric residence permit. They are issued for a period of 90 days, during the pandemic, this period was extended from 30 days.

If you are unable to enter the UK before your vignette expires, you can apply for a replacement without having to submit a new visa application, provided that your leave to enter has not expired. The replacement application costs £154 and requires attending a biometric appointment. A decision on your application should be made within three weeks.
