Immigration bail was implemented on 15 January 2018. It replaced the former powers of temporary admission, temporary release, release on restrictions and all forms of Chief Immigration Officer and Immigration Judge bail with a single power of immigration bail. It applies to persons who are detained or liable to detention.

Border Force uses this power in cases where a Border Force officer needs to make further enquiries before they make a decision on a person’s entry to the UK or when a person is released from immigration detention
