The table below shows the number of forms IS151A issued to clandestine entrants within the United Kingdom. This notifies an individual that they are liable to detention and removal from the UK as an illegal entrant.

The Home Office does not hold reliable data prior to 2005.

· Figures in the table above are based on a count of case type illegal entry clandestine.

· Data is up to 30 September 2014.

· Data based on people with case type as above and outcome of 'Served IS151A'. An IS151A may be issued at the time of encounter, but may be recorded as a clandestine entrant based on the lack of a lawful method of entry to the UK being found (which may be clandestine entry but could have been document abuse)
