star this property answer text <p> </p><p>No unaccompanied child under the age of 18 can be forcibly removed from the UK <br>unless adequate care and reception arrangements are in place in their country <br>of origin. The difficulty of setting up suitable reception arrangements has <br>meant that, with the exception of transfers to other European Union countries <br>under the *Dublin Regulations, the Home Office does not routinely enforce the <br>return of unaccompanied children to any country. The majority of unaccompanied <br>children whose asylum claims are rejected are granted temporary leave which is <br>reviewed when they reach 17½ years of age.
