Mandatory immigration detention is the practice of detaining or imprisoning individuals who are considered to be illegal immigrants or unauthorized to enter into a country until a decision is made by to either grant a visa and release them from
detention into the community, or to repatriate them to their country of departure.
Immigration bail is when people who are detained by the UK Border Agency can make an application to a court for release, usually under certain conditions. All detainees have the right to apply for bail if they have been in the UK for at least 7
When a detainee makes an application for immigration bail, they are brought to an immigration court where an independent Immigration Judge decides on whether detention should be upheld.
The case can be presented by a legal representative and will generally be opposed by a Home Office Presenting Officer.
Taking legal representation early on is essential to ensure that the rules are applied correctly in each case for bail and we can also assist with a strong initial bail application to try to ensure that you are released on bail.
Will I be Granted Bail?
The immigration authorities have a duty to grant you bail unless they can prove that there is a good reason for detaining you.
The main reasons you may be detained are:
It is likely that you will not comply with the authorities while your application is being decided
The authorities need to establish your identity
You are waiting to be removed from the UK or the outcome of a fast track application
Our specialist team will assess the legalities and merits of the case and will offer expert advice and immigration advice and support in these matters.
