star this property answer text <p>The UK has a long and proud history of granting asylum to those who need our protection. But when a decision has been made that a person does not require international protection, the Home Office will take steps to remove that person. Removal is only enforced when the Home Office and the courts conclude that it is safe to do so, with a safe route of return.</p><p>Re-documentation interviews with officials from receiving countries are a standard part of the Home Office returns process.</p><p>Once an individual no longer has the right to remain in the UK and a travel document is required to facilitate return, interviews are conducted by officials from diplomatic missions to establish nationality and identity to enable a travel document to be produced. Basic personal information and supporting evidence such as a copy of a passport or birth certificate (if available), are provided to officials to support this process.</p> more like this

In March 2017, the UK signed new agreements with Pakistan to enhance cooperation on a number of security and home affairs priorities, including on criminal finances. There has since been positive engagement between the UK and Pakistan on these issues at senior and Ministerial level.</p> more like this

Leave to remain in the UK is normally granted with a condition that prevents the person and their dependants from receiving welfare assistance from public funds. However, where the person qualifies for leave to remain on grounds related to their family or private life the condition is lifted if they or they or their dependent children would otherwise be destitute.</p>
