When a child passes the age of 18 and their Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC) leave expires, they are no longer considered to be a UASC and are therefore required to take steps to return voluntarily or seek further leave to remain. If the individual does not seek to regularise their stay through further applications or leave is not granted they may be removed in accordance with the Immigration Rules and published Home Office policy should they fail to leave voluntarily.
The table below provides the number of individuals refused further leave in each of the last 10 years where they had been previously granted UASC leave.
|Year of Further Leave Application||No of FL Refusals|
