The following table provides the number of asylum cases removed or departing voluntarily from the UK to Somalia in each of the last 12 months.
|Total asylum enforced removals||Total asylum voluntary departures|
|1 Destination as recorded on source database; all nationals returned to Somalia. 2 Removals are recorded on the system as at the dates on which the data extracts were taken. 3 Recorded on the system as having claimed asylum at some point. 4 Provisional figures. Notes: 1. It is not possible within these figures to say at what stage in the asylum process individuals have reached at the time of their removal, including whether their claim has failed at that point, as those departing voluntarily can do so at any stage without necessarily notifying the Home Office. The figures therefore include all asylum cases removed or departing voluntarily to Somalia, including those both awaiting a decision and those that have been refused asylum. 2. The Home Office publishes quarterly and annual statistics on the number of persons removed or departing voluntarily from the UK within Immigration Statistics. The data on removals and voluntary departures are readily available in the latest release, Immigration Statistics: January to March 2014, from the gov.uk website: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/home-office/series/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release|
