Under the Human Rights Act 1998 it is unlawful for any public authority, including the Home Office (UK Visas & Immigration) and its immigration officers to act in a way that is inconsistent with the rights set out within the European Convention on Human Rights.
The protection of the European Convention on Human Rights extends to every person within the United Kingdom and also to those under the authority and control of the UK immigration authorities.
Main eligibility requirements for leave to remain on human rights grounds
In certain circumstances, you may be able to apply for leave to remain in the United Kingdom on the basis that to require you to leave would breach your human rights. Anyone subject to an eligible immigration decision also has the right to appeal to the Immigration Tribunal on the ground that the immigration decision breaches their human rights.
The most common human rights provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights that are engaged in an immigration context are Article 3: prohibition on torture and inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment; Article 8: right to respect for private and family life.
