To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many Saudi Arabian citizens were deported from the UK in (a) 2015, (b) 2016, (c) 2017 and (d) 2018; and how many such citizens have been deported from October 2018 to date.

The number of enforced returns from the UK by year and country of nationality is published in table rt_02 (returns data tables, volume 1) in ‘Immigration Statistics, year ending December 2018’, available from the website at:

The term 'deportations' refers to a legally-defined subset of returns which are enforced either following a criminal conviction or when it is judged that a person’s removal from the UK is conducive to the public good. Information on those deported is not separately available and therefore the published statistics refer to all enforced returns.

Information for January to March 2019 will be published in May 2019.
