New measures introduced by the Ministry of Justice earlier this month have revealed that asylum seekers will no longer be informed immediately if they lose an immigration tribunal appeal – with the measures aimed to improve deportation measures.
At present, the Home Office and those who’ve made an appeal are informed of the immigration tribunal’s decision at the same time; however under the new measures the Home Office are to be advised of the decision in advance.
The new measures will also see the Home Office have the final responsibility of informing the asylum seeker of the tribunal’s decision.
In addition to altering the way in which asylum seekers are informed of the immigration tribunal’s final decision, the new measures are designed to enable the Home Office to have enough time to consider any additional measures which may be required when informing the individual of the result – such as having immigration officers with them, to detain the individual on the spot.
