Offenders: Deportation

This Government is clear that foreign nationals who abuse our hospitality by committing crimes should be in no doubt of our determination to deport them.

Any foreign national who is convicted of a crime and given a prison sentence in the UK is considered for deportation at the earliest opportunity.

The New Plan for Immigration will stop foreign criminals abusing the system and speed up the removals of those with no right to remain in the UK.

The Home Office publishes data on the number of Foreign National Offenders (FNOs) returned from the UK in each quarter in the ‘Immigration Statistics Quarterly release’. The latest data, published on 26th August 2021, can be found in tables Ret_02 and Ret_02q of the Returns Summary tables. The latest data relates to year ending March 2021 and includes those who were detained in detention centres and prisons.
