New independent complaint investigation service launched by Home Office

The Home Office has set up a new independent complaint investigation service. Now, if you are unhappy with the Home Office’s final response to a complaint, you can make a further complaint to the Independent Examiner of Complaints (IEC).

However, complaints can only be considered in certain circumstances:

  • If a final response has been received that explains that you can bring it to the Office for the Independent Examiner of Complaints if you are unhappy with the outcome.
  • Contact has to be made within three months of receiving the final complaint response.

Complaints about certain business areas can be considered, including:

  • UK visa and Immigration
  • Immigration Enforcement

  • Detention and Escorting Services
  • HM Passport Office

The complaint may be about a delay or an error, poor service or advice, or a failure to follow the correct procedures.
