Offenses did for Immigration and types of enforcement actions

Generally, the people removed or deported from UK are not criminals instead immigration offenders. Now the question arises when a candidate is considered immigration offender. The candidates who have overstayed their visa UK or have been found to enter the country illegally are considered immigration offender. Such candidates are generally not deported but are made subject to administrative removal. Even if candidates are removed from UK, they can yet make an application to return back to UK; however, with respect to new immigration rules defined in October 2008. However, a candidate removed or deported from UK cannot apply for visa UK for the period of 1, 5, or 10 years on the basis of the fact whether they voluntarily left or removed.


The legal expulsion of an undesirable alien is known as deportation. In the case of deportation, persons are forced to leave UK and curb them to re-enter UK unless it is revoked. In the case of any breaching of documents, the person is considered as an illegal entrant and shall be subject to deport from visa UK by the government. When the orders for deportation are defined, they are always signed by Home secretary. Presently, these orders are signed by a senior official. In such orders, it is being specified that till when a candidate cannot return UK and the severity of the offence is also laid down. Such deportation orders stay in force until revoked.
