Overstaying and breaching the terms of your visa, for instance illegally working whilst in the UK on a visitor visa, are criminal offences which could carry a fine or prison sentence. In practice, the Secretary of State or UK Border Agency (UKBA) will seek to remove or deport you from the UK rather than keep you in prison.
UK Border Agency officers have arrested 6 people during an investigation into suspected employment of illegal workers and fraud at a care company based in Sutton, Surrey.
Leading adviser Cynthia Barker said that since Christmas she has been inundated with calls from people detained and issued with removal orders. “The phone is ringing day and night with calls from overstayers in detention centres, such as Yarlswood, or their desperate friends and relatives. “Some are in relationships with British citizens or EEA nationals and should have taken steps to regularise their stay in the UK before being picked up.”
British Member of Parliament (MP) Stewart Jackson has called for a limit on immigration from the EU and a ‘variation’ on the free movement directive prior to millions of Romanians and Bulgarians being given to work in the UK.
On 1 July Croatia will join the European Union, but will have similar work restrictions imposed on them limiting employment to work permits holders, the self employed and students exercising treaty rights to study and work on a yellow card.
If you have been detained, need any immigration advice or are worried about the new immigration rules or need help with Sponsorship or Tier 2, Tier 4, applying for university if your college has closed down, Visa, ILR, Settlement, Citizenship, Dependant Visa or an appeal against a UK Border Agency or British Embassy refusal, or if you have been waiting for a reply from the Home Office for longer than a year, please email:
