Memoranda of Understanding on Deportations with Assurances

Where the UK needs to deport someone, but need specific assurances that they would be treated in line with human rights standards such as the European Convention on Human Rights, this is done under the Government’s Deportation with Assurances policy.

The UK has agreements with a number of countries – usually in the form of a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ between governments – which give assurances around the treatment of people deported from the UK to one of these countries, or from one of these countries to the UK.
