Living Illegally in the UK

If an applicant has made an application to enter or remain in the United Kingdom (UK), has made a protection claim, or a human rights claim, or a decision to remove or deport has been made, the person may be served a “one stop notice” this is under section 120 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 (as amended by the 2014 Act). This notice allows a person to raise any additional reasons or grounds (other than those raised in the application). These grounds may permit an applicant to remain in the UK or get them a Right of Appeal.

If no response is made to the notice but the person makes a late claim, if refused, the claim can be certified under section 96 of the 2002 Act, such that there will not be a right of appeal in the United Kingdom.
