WE CAN REVOKE YOUR DEPORTATION ORDER
An applicant who has previously been deported from the UK at any time must apply in writing for a revocation of the Deportation Order and wait for the outcome of the revocation request before they can travel to the UK (if a non-visa national) or before applying for an entry clearance (if a visa national).
How we can get a Deportation Order revoked
We submit on your behalf an application for the revocation of your Deportation Order either to the Entry Clearance Officer or directly to the Home Office.
How much time must elapse before we can apply to have your Deportation Order revoked?
Immigration Rules do not set any specific period before which an application would normally be refused. However, Revocation of a Deportation Order will not normally be authorised unless the situation has materially altered, either by a change in circumstances since the Deportation Order was made or by fresh information coming to light which was not available at the time the Deportation Order was made. The passage of time since the person was deported may amount to such a change in circumstances.
Criminal conviction cases
A person can apply at any time for revocation of a Deportation Order made against them.
In the case of a person who has been deported following conviction for a criminal offence, Paragraph 391 of the Immigration Rules confirms that the continuation of a Deportation Order against that person will be the proper course:
(a) in the case of a conviction for an offence for which the person was sentenced to a period of imprisonment of less than 4 years, unless 10 years have elapsed since the making of the Deportation Order when, if an application for revocation is received, consideration will be given on a case-by-case basis as to whether the Deportation Order should be maintained, or
(b) in the case of a conviction for an offence for which the person was sentenced to a period of imprisonment of at least 4 years, at any time.
This will be the case unless, in either case, the continuation would be contrary to the Human Rights Convention or the Convention and Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees, or there are other exceptional circumstances that mean the continuation is outweighed by compelling factors.
Revocation of a Deportation Order does not entitle the person concerned to re-enter the United Kingdom; it renders them eligible to apply for admission under the Immigration Rules.
