The UK Visas and Immigration service and the Immigration Enforcement service have issued guidance on families and children for officers dealing with enforcement and immigration matters within the UK.

Section 55 of the Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Act 2009 requires the Secretary of State to make arrangements for ensuring that Home Office functions are discharged having regard to the need to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in the UK.

These enforcement instructions and guidance documents on deportations and criminal cases provide guidance for Immigration Enforcement staff dealing with cases involving families and children, and comprise three sections:
  • Section A: general guidance. This section provides generic guidance to staff dealing with cases where there are family and/or children present, for example., Section 55 consideration, timing of enforcement visits, provision of car seats etc.
  • Section B: operational process – the family returns process (FRP). This section details the operational policy and process for those families, with dependent children (aged under 18), who are liable to be removed.
  • Section C: operational process – outside of the FRP. This section provides the operational policy and process for families without dependent children (aged under 18) or unaccompanied children who are liable to be removed. This section includes processes for permanent separations of families with children that fall outside the FRP.
The four guidance documents are available to download below.
