deportation
the expulsion of a person from the UK. Deportation is authorised under the Immigration Act 1971 in the case of persons not having a right of abode in the UK. Deportation from the UK may be ordered in five circumstances, namely:
(1) if the person has overstayed or broken a condition attached to his permission to stay;
(2) if another person to whose family he belongs is deported;
(3) if (the person being 17 or over) a court recommends deportation on his conviction of an offence punishable with imprisonment;
(4) if the Secretary of State thinks his deportation would be for the public good; or
(5) obtaining leave to enter by deception.
A deportation order is an administrative requirement by the Secretary of State (or on the recommendation of a court) that the person to whom the order is addressed leave the UK and not return. It nullifies any leave the person had to enter or remain. The person is notified of the decision, the reasons and the place to which the person is to be deported. A right of appeal exists, and during the time that appeals are pending no deportation order may be executed.
