There is no maximum time the Department expects a person to travel in order to enrol their biometric information for a biometric residence permit.

There are 115 Post Office branches across the UK providing the biometric enrolment service; these are primarily located in or around cities and towns where the majority of applicants are residing. The extension of the service to other locations would be a commercial consideration for the Post Office Ltd.
