Vanguard Solicitors

You can apply for immigration bail if the Home Office is holding you on immigration matters. This means you might be released from detention but you’ll have to obey at least one condition.

Who can apply

You can apply whether you’re held in an immigration removal centre, a detention centre or a prison. You must be held on immigration matters.

When you’re more likely to get bail

You’re more likely to get bail if you have a place to stay.

Your application is also more likely to succeed if you have at least one ‘Financial Condition Supporter’. This is a person who:

  • will pay money if you don’t follow the conditions of your bail
  • can attend your bail hearing

Give information about where you’ll stay and your Financial Condition Supporters in the application form.

When you might not get released on bail

You may find it harder to get bail if you:

  • have broken bail conditions in the past
  • have a criminal record, and there’s a risk you might reoffend

If you were refused bail in the last 28 days, you won’t get another hearing unless your situation has changed significantly. Explain what you think has changed in your application.

If you are refused bail, you’ll get a written statement telling you why.

If you’re due to be removed from the country

You might not be released even if you’re granted bail. If your removal date is in the 14 days after you get bail, the Home Office will have to agree to your release.

Conditions of your bail

If you’re granted bail, there will be at least one condition you have to obey.

You might have to:

  • report regularly to an immigration official
  • attend an appointment or hearing
  • be restricted on where you can live
  • have an electronic monitoring tag
  • have restrictions on the work or studies you can do
  • obey any other condition decided by the person granting your bail

You or your financial condition supporter might have to promise to pay money if you break one of the other conditions of your bail. This is called a ‘financial condition’.

These conditions can be changed after you’re granted bail.

If you don’t follow the terms of your bail you might:

  • have your bail conditions changed so that there are tighter restrictions
  • be charged with a crime 

  • have to pay the money agreed at the hearing - or your Financial Condition Supporter might have to pay 

  • be returned to detention
