Illegal Immigrant Guideline
If a person's UK Visa has expired, they have no Visa or have breached their Visa conditions they are considered as an illegal immigrant. If this is the case they are likely to be held in detention and deported.
A person has a good case for UK Citizenship if they have lived in the UK as an illegal immigrant for a considerable amount of time. We can help make you a UK citizen for many reasons.
An illegal immigrant will not be protected by UK Immigration Law so may be made to work extremely long hours for very little pay.
Illegal immigrants may have a case for Asylum or on a Human Rights basis to stay in the UK.
The European Convention on Human Rights, prevents the UK sending someone to a country where there is a genuine risk that they will be exposed to torture, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
It would be unlawful for the UK immigration service to return an illegal immigrant to their own country if there is a strong chance that they will have to face torture, degradation and inhumane treatment.
The European Convention on Human Rights also provides protection for the families of immigrants. If a person's family cannot return to their home country safely then the family will be granted immigration status. This right is not absolute and it can be prevented if the other family member is deemed a threat to public or national security.
Benefits of becoming a UK Citizen
