Certification guidance for non-suspensive appeals: EEA deportation

This guidance covers nationals with enforceable EU law rights, who are deported under regulation 19(3)(b) of the European Economic Area (EEA) regulations.



The guidance covers the Immigration (European Economic Area)(Amendment)(No.2) Regulations 2014, which came into force on 28 July 2014. They change previous regulations so that if you appeal against a deportation decision this no longer stops you being removed from the UK, with a couple of exceptions.

If you were deported under regulation 19(3)(b) (ie the Secretary of State decided your removal was justified on grounds of public policy, public security or public health) before appealing, or before your appeal was finally determined, these regulations allow you to apply from out of country for permission to re-enter the UK to make submissions in person at the appeal hearing.
