Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

UK Immigration Removal Centres

The UK hosts a number of Immigration Removal Centres (IRCs), often known as Detention Centres. These facilities share similarities with conventional prisons and serve as locations where the UK Government detains individuals suspected of lacking a lawful basis to remain in the UK, or whose legal status in the country is pending resolution. During their stay, the government endeavours to facilitate their removal or deportation to their country of origin.

While immigration detention operates as an administrative measure, it can bear resemblance to a criminal process. At UK Immigration Solicitors, we extend our support to detainees who are held in any of the designated detention centres mentioned below.

The UK Government believes detaining individuals prevents them from disappearing prior to their UK removal. UK Immigration Solicitors strongly oppose this stance. We firmly believe that detention should be reserved for rare situations, and individuals awaiting Home Office decisions or removals should receive respectful and dignified treatment, rather than being treated with disrespect and mistrust.

UK Immigration: Detention & Bail

Freedom from arbitrary arrest and imprisonment is a fundamental human right, protected under the Human Rights Act 1998, and is legally enforceable throughout the UK.

At UK Immigration Solicitors, we understand the importance of safeguarding this right. If you or someone you know has been detained, we are here to help. Our dedicated team is committed to assisting you and will strive to secure your release from detention as promptly as possible.

Our Legal Services Include:

  • Requesting the Home Office to release the detainee on Temporary Admission (TA), taking into account individual circumstances.
  • In cases where the Home Office refuses to grant Temporary Admission, we will act upon the detainee’s instructions and lodge an application for Immigration Judge’s bail.
  • Communicating with the sureties and guiding them on their role in facilitating the detainee’s release from detention.
  • Preparing the bail bundle and ensuring it is sent to all relevant parties.
  • Engaging an experienced and highly skilled Barrister to represent you before the Tribunal.
  • Providing a clear explanation of the further options available to the detainee if the Immigration Judge denies bail.
