Bail and Temporary Admission
Bail is a request for individuals who have been detained at an immigration removal centre to secure their release from detention in the UK.
Before applying for bail, representations and supporting documentation need to be submitted to the Chief Immigration Officer (CIO) requesting your release on Temporary Admission (TA). If the CIO refuses to grant temporary admission, you can apply for bail directly to the First-Tier Tribunal, by submitting the relevant form and supporting documentation, including details of your sureties detailing the amount they are willing to forfeit should the applicant breach their conditions of leave. A surety’s main obligation is to ensure that the applicant attends the court hearing and comply with the conditions of bail.
You will then receive a hearing date followed by a case summary from the Home Office containing the reasons they are opposing your bail application. You must attend the hearing along with your sureties or if you are detained, your hearing will take place by video link. If you are legally represented, your solicitor or legal representative will attend the hearing too.
The immigration judge will make a decision on your bail application on the day of your hearing. If your application is successful, you will be granted bail and released subject to your complying with your bail conditions which the Judge will impose at the hearing. If your bail application is refused, you will need to wait for 28 days to submit a fresh bail application.
You might not get released on bail if you have previously broken bail conditions, have absconded, have a criminal record and there’s a risk that you might reoffend.
Bail applications are not simple, particularly if the applicant has a poor immigration history and criminal convictions. They require good preparation of the bail grounds to challenge the Home Office’s objections to bail, a good assessment of the bail conditions which are likely to be accepted by the Immigration Judge and good representation at court.
