When an individual is suspected of visa violations, illegal entry or unauthorized arrival, he is detained until a decision is made by the immigration authorities.

Bail is the legal procedure of releasing an individual from immigration detention. This process is available to any person who has been detained by the Home Office under the Immigration Acts and has been in a detention, removal centre or prison for seven days or more in the UK.

This process involves making an application to the court for release under certain conditions. When a detainee applies for bail, their case is presented by their legal representative to an immigration court. Here, an independent Immigration judge makes a decision on whether the detention should be retained.

The legal representative will generally be opposed by a Home Office Presenting Officer. If the bail is granted, there may be certain conditions attached to it which are observed on release.
