UK immigration law typically falls under the jurisdiction of the Home Office, which is responsible for UK’s border control, as well as the regulation of foreigners who require permission for entering and residing in the country. Additionally, the Home Office also handles British citizenship applications.


Home Office oversight of immigration law can be grouped into three different sectors. Visas and Immigration involves handling applications for entering the UK, as well as sponsors and asylum applications. The UK Border Force manages border crossings and enforces customs regulations. Immigration Enforcement is the sector of the Home Office tasked with handling deportations, immigration offenses, and detaining.
