Most immigration offenders are removed under administrative or illegal entry powers from the UK and are not deported. Deportations are a specific subset of removals which are enforced either following a criminal conviction or when it is judged that a person’s removal from the UK is conducive to the public good.

The question has been taken as meaning all enforced removals.

The table below shows the number of Romanian and Bulgarian nationals as of 30 January 2015 awaiting either removal or deportation as a combined total, with removal directions scheduled and set for removal.

Removal Directions set

Romania 20

Bulgaria 5
