I was stupid enough to put my BRP in my wallet and I lost it. Now I have three weeks before I go home and I need priority if I want my BRP replaced, which is too expensive.
So I was thinking of applying for a replacement visa after going home and come back and apply for my BRP in January, and overall it almost saves me £450. Now, I'll be going home for a month so I should have enough time for a replacement visa right?
Secondly, is it legal to do so? I mean, is it allowed if I report my BRP stolen in UK but apply for a replacement visa(instead of replacement BRP directly)? Or do I need to fib a bit?
Thanks in advance!
