Bail & Detention
People who have arrived illegally into the UK, or who failed to leave the country when their visa expired, or who have had a claim for asylum turned down can face detention in an Immigration Removal Centre (IRC), before eventually being deported from the UK.
Applying for Immigration Bail
In the event that you are being held by the Home Office on immigration matters, it may be possible to secure your release from detention if you apply for bail and agree to obey certain conditions or release.
You are allowed to apply for Immigration Bail regardless of whether you are held in an Immigration Removal Centre, a detention centre or a prison – as long as you are being detained on immigration grounds.
