Our client was a failed asylum seeker and had been living in the UK since 2012 with unregulated
immigration status. In 2020, he was arrested and detained by the Home Office Immigration
Enforcement team. Whilst detained at Colnbrook Immigration Removal Centre, Vietnamese
Embassy was approached by the Home Office to get client’s Emergency Travel Document to
affect his removal from the UK. The client and his partner were extremely distressed at the
prospect of his imminent removal.
We were only instructed by the client’s partner at that stage. Evaluating the urgency of
circumstances and potential risks involved if delayed, we made strong representations seeking
client’s urgent release based on his genuine relationship and established family life with his
partner. We made Bail application to both Secretary of the State and the Immigration Tribunal. Not
only that our client was released from detention within few days, he was later granted a limited
leave to remain [30 months visa].
He now runs a successful business and has been living happily with his partner and a young child.
