Crew Care Team - UK Immigration Alert
The UK government has recently announced a series of tough new immigration enforcement measures to combat an ever-increasing number of undocumented migrants entering the UK via the English Channel. This year alone it is thought as many as 40,000 individuals have arrived via North European countries.
These new measures which will be implemented in the coming months are designed to counter the continued activities of people smuggling gangs who remain continually active in many European countries including France, Spain and the Netherlands. The number of Albania nationals is of particular concern to UK authorities, and it is understood that Albania will be deemed a 'safe country' which will result in the number of asylum applications being significantly reduced and deportation operations increased by 50/70%.
