The UK is currently not enforcing the removal of failed asylum applicants to the following countries, or parts of countries:
Sri Lanka—coastal areas of the north, east, south and south west;
Indonesia—the province of Aceh on the island of Sumatra;
The Maldives—affected islands;
India—coastal areas of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Pondicherry, Andhra Pradesh and the
Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
This approach is in line with the UNHCR's recommendations for south-east Asia of 12 January 2005. Proposals to conduct removals to non-affected areas immediately outside of those identified above, are being reviewed sensitively and on a case by case basis. The Government do not attach a time scale to their policy to temporarily suspend enforced returns on the basis that this is being monitored and kept under active review in light of the ongoing assessment and development of the country conditions.
