Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Objection to destination

67Removal on objection to destination

(1)This section applies if directions are given under the 1971 Act for a person’s removal from the United Kingdom—

(a)on his being refused leave to enter,

(b)on a deportation order being made against him, or

(c)on his having entered the United Kingdom in breach of a deportation order.

(2)That person may appeal to an adjudicator against the directions on the ground that he ought to be removed (if at all) to a different country specified by him.

68Limitations on rights of appeal under section 67

(1)Section 67 does not entitle a person to appeal against directions given on his being refused leave to enter the United Kingdom unless—

(a)he is also appealing under section 59(1) against the decision that he requires leave to enter; or

(b)he was refused leave at a time when he held a current entry clearance or was a person named in a current work permit.

(2)If a person is entitled to object to a country on an appeal under section 59 or 63 and—

(a)he does not object to it on that appeal, or

(b)his objection to it on that appeal is not sustained,

section 67 does not entitle him to appeal against any directions subsequently given as a result of the refusal or order in question, if their effect will be his removal to that country.

(3)A person who claims that he ought to be removed to a country other than one he has objected to on an appeal under section 59, 63 or 67 must produce evidence, if he is not a national or citizen of that other country, that that country will admit him.
