Anyone with limited or indefinite leave to remain in the UK could be liable for deportation or removal from the UK in certain circumstances.

If you or your family member is at risk of deportation or removal or have been detained by the Home Office, you should seek specialist advice as early as possible.

Administrative removal

If you have broken immigration rules you may be asked to leave the UK under administrative removal. Reasons for this may be:

  • You have overstayed your permission to live in the UK
  • Your visa application to stay in the UK has been refused
  • You have broken the rules of your visa or leave to remain

Challenging Deportation

If you are a non UK or European Union national who has committed a serious criminal offence, you and your family could be considered for deportation.

Where a person has been convicted of a criminal offence for which they have received a prison sentence of 12 months or more, deportation is automatic. However, it can be challenged on protection or human rights grounds including family life established in the UK.

Where a deportation decision is made, there is a right of appeal to the Tribunal.

Immigration bail

Any person who does not have valid leave to enter or remain in the UK is subject to immigration bail. This means that the Home Office can set conditions such as regular reporting to an immigration officer, living at a specific address and restrictions on work and study.

If a person is detained then they may be able to apply for immigration bail. An application can be made to an Immigration Officer or to the Immigration Tribunal. Again, if granted it can be subject to conditions and restrictions.
