What Is The Compensation Claim Against The Home Office UKVI?

A compensation claim against the Home Office UKVI is a claim to be compensated for any financial loss caused by the Home Office UKVI as a result of the Home Office UKVI's wrongful act or omission in dealing with your matter.

Following are the various examples in which a claim for compensation of financial loss can be made against the Home Office UKVI:

  • Loss of earnings: If your application for leave to remain in the UK has been refused unlawfully by the Home Office, UKVI as a result of which you have lost your job and thus incurred financial loss. In such circumstances, if your legal challenge to the refusal has succeeded in the court and the Home Office UKVI has resultantly granted your application, you can seek compensation for all the loss you incurred in the form of loss of earnings can be claimed from the Home Office UKVI;
  • Unlawful refusal of entry: If you were refused entry at the port of arrival (e.g. airport) unlawfully by the Home Office UKVI and you have been removed from the UK unlawfully, you can file a compensation claim for the financial loss incurred in the form of your travel expenses e.g. travel ticket as well as the unlawful immigration detention and removal from the UK;
  • You can seek financial compensation for maladministration on part of the Home Office UKVI which include the following:
    • Losing documents: These can include the loss of documents such as passports, driving licences, marriage certificates, birth certificates, college certificates etc. that have been submitted by applicants and have been lost or misplaced whilst in Home Office UKVI care;
    • Incorrectly addressed correspondence: If the envelope used to return documents is incorrectly addressed and this causes the loss of documents by a third party, e.g. Royal Mail, the Home Office business area responsible for sending it out would be liable for that loss;
    • Defacing/invalidating documents: Examples may include punching a national passport which invalidates it, or marking/defacing a document which leads to it being invalidated;
    • Taking incorrect action: An example of failing to take correct action could be endorsing a passport with the wrong conditions, resulting in a person being unable to take up a work placement;
    • Failure to respond to correspondence: An example of failing to respond to correspondence can be where an immigrant has written to a business area in Immigration Enforcement, UK Visas & Immigration or Border Force on a number of occasions (or over a period of time) regarding action that they needed Home Office UKVI to take, such as returning a passport/confirmation of right to work, which has then led to the immigrant incurring financial cost. Correspondence examples can also be considered under non-financial loss where staff have not responded to correspondence which could cause the person anxiety and inconvenience;
    • Giving incorrect advice: An example of giving incorrect advice would be an immigrant making an application too early or submitting an incorrect application based on incorrect advice, particularly if it incurs a charge.

The list above is not comprehensive and exhaustive and there may be other circumstances in which compensation claim against the Home Office UKVI may be made as a result of an action or omission of the Home Office UKVI.
