In accord to the immigration Act 1971 sections 3(5) and (6), the secretary of state has the power to give an order for deportation against any criminal action of a foreign national.
By the term deportation, it refers that the individual needs to leave the country and sanction their detention as well till their removal.
If you are a foreign national who has been convicted of any crime in the UK, there is a possibility that you may be deported.
In case of deportation from the UK, there is an added risk of getting banned from entry to the UK for up to ten years.

How does a person get deported from the UK?
The process to deport someone from the UK begins as soon as a person has been arrested and placed in police custody.
It is usually carried out by air, but where the individual cannot travel by air an escort will be provided and they could go by sea or rail.
Deportation can be enforced either immediately after serving a prison sentence, or after a person has been released from prison on license.
In the case of criminals, it will be enforced immediately upon release from custody. In all other instances, deportation is only enforced once the individual has completed a prison sentence and any license period - unless they voluntarily agree to leave earlier. A person can also be deported before their trial if their home country is willing to take them back.
The Home Office can detain an individual if it believes their detention is necessary for deportation, even if they have not yet been convicted of any crime. If the individual has completed a prison sentence there can be no immediate deportation without the consent of the person's home country - but this can be overruled by the courts later on, where it is deemed that release would be too much of a risk.
If someone waives their right to appeal against removal or refuses to leave voluntarily, then enforced deportation will begin around 10 days after verdicts are reached in their latest case before magistrates or crown court. If the person appeals, they will usually remain in immigration detention until the outcome of their legal challenge.
If an individual loses an appeal or is otherwise unsuccessful in their bid to remain in the UK then they are deported.
It used to be that detained individuals who were about to be removed from the country were held at Harmondsworth Immigration Removal Centre near London Heathrow. That is now only true for those whose deportation is urgent due to exceptional circumstances - such as a person's life being under threat if they fly. Most people now pass-through Colnbrook Immigration Removal Centre near Heathrow before they are deported. The majority of removals take place on commercial flights but occasionally charter planes may be used instead.
What is the meaning of deportation in law?
"The removal and expulsion of an alien from a country." Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition.
From which countries do we deport people?
We deport people to their home countries, or to other countries where they have legal right to live; those deported may be forced to sign a document agreeing not to reenter the United States without permission. UK immigration law provides for deporting any alien (a person who is not a citizen of the United States) that was admitted into this country illegally, or has violated the terms under which he/she was admitted; we also deport resident aliens if they violate criminal laws and cause harm in this country.
There are many ways illegal immigrants can end up in deportation proceedings: entering the UK without a visa, using false documents to gain entry into the UK, overstaying their visa, or getting arrested and convicted of a crime.
Is deportation a punishment in the UK?
UK deportation is considered as one of the most important processes for removing foreign nationals who are not allowed to remain in the UK. This is because it's normally mandatory for every foreigner to leave the country after his or her visa expires unless there are exceptional, humane or compassionate circumstances. Failure to abide by this law can lead to arrest and jail time. The process of deportation begins only when the Home Office serves notice of one's liability for deportation on an individual who is already not supposed to stay in the UK due to any reason. If he refuses to return back voluntarily then he will be forcibly removed from the country under escort which may take place immediately or within 2 months.
What crimes make you deportable in the UK?
As a result of changes implemented on the 29th April 2013, most foreign nationals who are convicted of a criminal offence in the UK, with a sentence of fewer than 12 months will be automatically deported from the UK. Please note that this is regardless of your immigration status or whether you have been lawfully admitted to the UK.
In addition to being subject to automatic deportation as a result of receiving an imprisonment term, certain crimes also make individuals eligible for mandatory deportation. In order for such individual's leave to remain status in one – or expired – they have fallen into one or more of these categories: - Drug offences - Human trafficking - Willful neglect leading to death/serious injury - Offensive behaviour - Driving offences - Sexual offences- Homicide and attempted murder - Theft and handling
Offences that may be considered "crimes of moral turpitude" and lead to deportation:
- Acts contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations (UN) or 'Deeply Flawed' Criminal conduct.
- Any activity, which undermines society.
- Sexual crimes such as rape, sexual abuse, incest, buggery, bestiality etc. Such offences should render the individual liable for automatic deportation. This category does not include sexual acts between consenting adults.
- Offences against public justice such as perjury, escaping from prison etc. These offences should also make individuals liable to automatic deportation albeit if they were sentenced to a term in excess of 12 months imprisonment.
- Impersonation of a person and offences under the Identity Cards Act, titles and offence created or altered by immigration law.
- Terrorism and terrorist-related activity.
Please note: if you have been convicted of more than one criminal offence, all such offences will be considered in the context of your overall criminality. This means that even if some sentences were less than twelve months, the fact that you received multiple sentences may still make you liable for automatic deportation. In addition to this, any sentence which is combined with a sentence of twelve months or more may also lead to your removal from the UK.
What crimes make you deportable in the UK?
In the UK, a person who is not a British citizen can be deported or refused entry to the country if they have been convicted of a "particularly serious crime" that makes them “not conducive to the public good”. A person may also be deported if they are considered to be an illegal immigrant. While these rules affect everyone equally, there are some notable exceptions - such as EU nationals and people with dual citizenship.
The new policy was announced by Mrs May in 2012 and came into effect at the start of 2013.

They have been very helpful to me! I used to call random times in the day and so many times and they always assured me that everything will be ok!! Thank You TMC Solicitors
TMC Solicitors provided excellent service. Very friendly and supportive staff, always available to clarify if any questions or doubts. The guidance throughout the application process was precise and upto the point. Thanks for all your help. TMC solicitors are definitely recommended.
TMC Solicitors are a dedicated law firm with a friendly team that are both professional and ethical in their business practice.
They are very thorough and their paper work is impeccable. They will always pick up your call or return your call if they are busy.
They guide and brief you well on what to expect regarding your case and are always happy to welcome you (if you need a one to one meeting) in their Manchester offices. I would strongly recommend their services to anyone requiring legal services both within and outside the UK.
TMC solicitors were asked to make an application for a difficult case that involve domestic psychological violence . They conducted there work professionally and with careful anticipation of what might the home office through at them. They succeeded in obtaining the residency approval. I highly recommend them and I wish them all the success they deserve.
TMC Solicitors are very professional and would lay out all the options available to you before advising on the best option to take. Recently had an immigration matter that was proving very difficult to handle in the U.K. Produced all the documents requested by the Solicitors and they drafted supporting letter to the home office. Was not expecting to hear back from the home office for a while but was pleasantly surprised when a positive result was granted to us in less than 5 months.
From skepticism to elation! I can’t thank you and your dedicated team enough for the outstanding results achieved.
From our first meeting in July with respect to a refused visitor’s visa, to our last in November for the intended spousal visa, it has been an emotional and financial roller coaster. My wife, my son and I are so ecstatic at the exceptional service, guidance and wisdom that TMC Solicitors Ltd, that we strongly believe in putting it in writing
A spousal visa is no joke, with Home Office making it extremely difficult for someone to bring their spouse to the UK. Besides the financial costs, the emotional strains are almost unbearable. The horror stories you hear and read about, give you sleepless nights. This is not for the faint hearted, and definitely something that you can’t do alone.
I would suggest anyone struggling to get a visa for your spouse to make contact with Muazzam at TMC. Be warned however, that you should listen closely to his advice, ensure that you give him all the facts. Supply everything that’s needed, miss nothing.
Thank you all, once again, for everything. We will be in touch for the visa extensions and the citizenship applications
I was the first client to do the third party sponsor's with TMC solicitors Ltd and my application was successful. Asrar was my key worker he is professional and very polite thankyou for all your support
I would highly recommend TMC Solicitors in Manchester whom I used for my mother in law's immigration matter. TMC were very professional, friendly, empathetic with excellent communication and consequently we won our case and even went down in case history! TMC were very accommodating and the standard of their documentation is very good. Their fees are very reasonable and they are transparent. I also recommended them to my colleague for an unmarried partner visa and they behaved in the same professional manner and my colleague obtained the visa he required. I would recommend them again.
A special thanks to Asrar and to Muazzam. You guys did an excellent job and myself and my family will be forever grateful to TMC. May you continue to succeed in your business and grow.
The team was very friendly and helpful. Guided me through every step and was always available should I have any questions or concerns. Many thanks again for all your help.

He was always available to answer my concerns and to reassure me. YOU DON'T HAVE TO KEEP CHECKING on your case because they will contact you as soon as they receive any update.

Family Seek Visa help from TMC Solicitors. My sister and my two daughters have been refused a Genuine Standard Family UK Visiting Visa from Nigeria on several occasions. I finally sought for help from TMC Solicitors and they go through the previous refusal applications and they helped me to prepared a professional and well-presented application. The Solicitors ensure every points raised by the Entry Visa Clearance in the previous refusals were properly addressed, to my greatest shock and surprised the Entry Visa Clearance erroneously refused the Applicant's application. It was apparent that the ECO did not consider our new evidence submitted with the application. It was so sad and ridiculous that the ECO said there will be no Administrative Review or Appeal for the Applicant's . Thank God for TMC Solicitors that encourage me to challenge the decision. The solicitors wrote a Pre-Action Protocol letter to the Home Office and challenge the unreasonable decision of the ECO, shortly after they submitted an application for Judicial Review. At the end we received a good news from the Home Office that the Applicantions will be reconsidered and the Applicant's will be granted their Visa. I would like to use this opportunity to express my profound gratitude to TMC Solicitors for all their caring and professional dedication throughout the process. Thank you once again TMC Solicitors and I will always recommend your good work and services to anyone seeking help on their immigration problem.

Very friendly, fast and great service . Helped me get a visa for my mrs and bring her over to the uk .very quick and efficient. Will definatley recomend to every one.. thank you
My future daughter-in-law had her fiancee visa refused on the grounds that she hadn't provided sufficient evidence of a long-term relationship with my son - she could have produced this if asked - and the whole family was deeply upset. In desperation we sought the legal advice of Immigration Solicitors 4me (locally known as TMC Solicitors). All the staff were extremely helpful and their legal expert, Muazzam Chughtai was fantastic. He looked carefully at all the documents we supplied and felt that my son's fiancee had such a strong case that she should apply again rather than appeal the original decision - which could take up to 48 weeks.
Muazzam gave us really good advice on what extra evidence we should provide and his covering letter was so strong that my son's fiancee was granted her visa less than 2 months after she was initially refused. It was the best Christmas present we could have wished for!
In conclusion, I can recommend them wholeheartedly if you want expert advice and help on immigration matters and visa applications.
Thank You TMC Solicitors for all your help and support,would most definitely highly recommend you for your outstanding services.
Very helpful staff.
brilliant staff, top class service, thanks again
I needed advice and I got a top class service
