I'm a Canadian looking to live & work in the UK under the Youth Mobility Tier 5 Scheme Visa. It states that I need a BRP (Biometric Residence Permit) but that I would pick it up within 10 days of arriving in the UK.
Do I need to apply for it before I send in my Visa and pick it up in the UK, or can I apply for one, once I'm in the UK.
Main reason that I ask is, the only Visa application center near me is closed for the time being, due to COVID. So unless I can somehow obtain the required information such as an eye scan and electronic fingerprints at another location such as an RCMP station, it would appear I'm screwed for the time being.
