No Recourse to Public Funds

No recourse to public funds (NRPF) is a condition imposed on someone due to their immigration status. Section 115 Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 states that a person will have ‘no recourse to public funds’ if they are ‘subject to immigration control’

If a person has leave to enter or remain with the NRPF condition then this will be specified on their residence permit, entry clearance vignette or biometric residence permit (BRP), as it will say ‘no public funds’.

If a person has valid leave to enter or remain and there is no reference to NRPF on their immigration documentation then it should be assumed that they do have recourse to public funds.
