The information session provides an overview of:

  • Changes for people who claim asylum on or after 28 June 2022 including new notices that can be issued and the risk of removal or transfer to a 'safe third country'
  • Accelerated appeals for people in detention
  • New offences for entering the UK illegally
  • Changes to conditions for granting bail

About the trainer:

Sue Conlan is Director at TACTIC Immigration and Asylum Training Consultancy Research CIC. TACTIC provides training which focuses on practical ways to advise and assist people claiming asylum or who are in the UK without a regular status.


Since this training session in September 2022, the Detained fast-track appeals is not in force and has not been rolled out. New notices (e.g. Evidence Notice, Priority Removal Notice) which are referred to in this training are also not in force. The extension of the definition of a "foreign criminal" is in force.

Refer here for the most up to date Home Office guidance on removal notices.

This is a useful report -from the Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford -for further reading on the impact of the Nationality and Borders Act on people who are criminalised for their arrival on a "small boat".
