Bail Applications in the Immigration Tribunal - Challenges & Solutions
The UK still detains the highest number of people under immigration powers in Europe. The bail system was comprehensively reviewed in 2016, and the changes have worked their way through the system, but there remain many challenges in getting bail, both from the Chief Immigration Office and the Tribunal.
The effect of the 2020/21 pandemic has brought further challenges and placed strain on an already overburdened system. Those who are initially detained frequently find themselves stuck in detention for want of an approved accommodation, and there have been many challenges in ensuring a safe place to which they can be released.
This webinar will explore the process of seeking release from immigration detention, from the first steps through to Tribunal bail applications. Consideration will be given to the types of conditions that are appropriate for different types of applicant, and what to do when the applicant does not have an address to be released to.
