Deportation and removal

 

A British citizen is not liable for deportation, but anyone with limited or indefinite leave to remain in the UK could be liable for deportation or removal from the UK.

Deportation

Deportation occurs when the Home Office decides that it is in the public interest to deport a person, this may be because the subject has committed a criminal offence in the UK. When a person is deported it is usual for their family members to be deported with them.

Once a person is deported they cannot return to the UK until their deportation order has expired and even then they may find it difficult to enter the country.

Removal

Removal from the UK happens to people who have:

  • Overstayed their visas
  • Entered the UK illegally or by deception
  • Failed to observe conditions attached to their leave

As with deportation, it is regular practice for family members of the person being removed to leave the country with them.

It is very important that if any of these proceedings commence, or you suspect they may commence, that you contact an immigration solicitor. A specialist immigration solicitor will assist you in appealing against any form of deportation or removal order and consider the ways that you may stay in the UK or avoid a ban on you re-entering the country.
