Deportation in the UK is typically associated with cases involving foreign nationals with criminal convictions. Deportation can be ordered under the following circumstances:
- When a court recommends the deportation of an individual who is over the age of 17 and has been convicted of an offence for which they could be punished with imprisonment.
- If the Secretary of State believes that an individual’s deportation is in the public good and in the public interest.
- If an individual is under 18 and is the spouse, civil partner, or child of a deportee.
Deportation is a complex and serious matter, and it’s important to seek legal advice and guidance if you are facing deportation or removal from the UK.
Removal orders are issued when individuals have violated the conditions of their immigration status in the UK. Administrative removal can be ordered in the following situations:
- When an individual has submitted an immigration application to stay in the UK which has been refused.
- If an individual has overstayed their permission to remain in the UK.
- When an individual has broken the rules of the immigration status they have been living under.
In these cases, individuals may be detained and subsequently removed from the country. It’s essential to seek legal advice and assistance if you are facing a removal order or deportation from the UK.
Can I Challenge a Deportation or Removal Order?
If you receive a deportation or removal order from the Home Office, you can challenge the decision by explaining why you believe you should be allowed to stay in the UK. It’s important to note that you are not automatically entitled to the right of appeal against a deportation order.
You can appeal a deportation order on the grounds of a breach of human rights under the UK’s Human Rights Act 1998. Additionally, if you are eligible to apply for asylum, you can challenge an administrative removal order.
To file an appeal against deportation or removal, you must do so within 28 days of receiving the order, or within 5 days if you are already in detention.
Seeking guidance and assistance from an experienced immigration law firm is crucial in this process. The Immigration Advice Service can provide you with emergency assistance if you are facing deportation or removal. Our experts can help you formulate an appeal to challenge the decision and support you throughout the entire process.

Frequently Asked Questions
If your appeal against deportation or removal is successful, and the deportation order is lifted, you can apply for entry clearance or seek “leave to enter” once you arrive at a UK port of entry. This means you will be allowed to enter or re-enter the UK without being deported or removed.
If you have additional evidence to support your right to remain in the UK, you can make another appeal if your first claim fails. However, if you have no right to appeal the Home Office’s decision, you can make a judicial review application, which may include an injunction to stop the deportation order. If you want to explore this option, consulting with immigration lawyers is advisable.
In cases where no further appeals are possible and you do not wish to leave voluntarily, the Home Office will make arrangements for your removal from the country. Once removed from the UK, you will not be allowed to return to the country for 10 years.
Deportation arrangements by the Home Office can take some time to organise. During this period, individuals facing deportation may be required to visit an immigration reporting center every two weeks or once a month.
If there is a short time-frame before removal or if the authorities suspect that someone may attempt to avoid deportation, they may be taken to a detention center. This can happen at any time, except for individuals who are pregnant or exempt due to their mental health condition. It is essential to ensure that you have all your necessary documents with you, such as copies of your applications and refusal decisions.
While in a deportation center, you still have certain rights, including the right to have visitors, make phone calls, use the Internet, and communicate with the outside world. Additionally, you may have the opportunity to apply for bail to secure your release.
If you or someone you know is detained in an immigration removal center or detention center, it is possible to apply for immigration bail. Depending on the specific circumstances, you can submit either a Home Office Bail application or a First-Tier Tribunal Bail application.
To apply for bail, you must have spent at least seven days in detention. If your application is successful, you will be granted “release on bail,” which allows you to leave the immigration removal center.
If you have friends or relatives who are currently facing detention, our experienced immigration lawyers can provide the support and guidance needed to submit a bail application. While we cannot guarantee the outcome of the application, we are dedicated to offering our best advice and assistance to ensure that the case is handled with care.
