Personal information charter

This personal information charter explains how we look after your information.

The borders, immigration and citizenship privacy information notice supplements the Home Office personal information charter. It sets out how personal information supplied or collected for the purposes of entering or leaving the UK, securing the border, making an application for a visa, leave, settlement, citizenship or other immigration service, claiming asylum or other form of protection, or gathered as part of the process of securing the border or enforcing immigration laws will be held and processed by the Home Office.

You can also find out how to ask for personal data held within the borders, immigration and citizenship system.

The privacy information notice is provided in accordance with data protection legislation which incorporates the UK General Data Protection Regulations (UK GDPR) and has been created following the guidance issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
