Home Office

A ministerial department

You cannot use this website to obtain immigration advice or ask questions about your own case. You also cannot ask for IHS refunds, BRP replacements or updates on the processing of ILR applications, family visas or similar.

This website makes all correspondence public. You must not use this service for personal correspondence. To contact the Home Office with personal inquiries use direct contact information published by the Home Office. Direct Home Office email addresses you can try include: public.enquiries@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk or nationalityenquiries@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk or DCAT@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk (Digital Correspondence Allocation Team) or ukvigeneral@mailgb.custhelp.com (UK Visas and Immigration).

We understand that it can be difficult to get a response from the Home Office to personal immigration queries. We suggest writing to the Home Office via a local Member of Parliament, if you send your correspondence to your MP, they or their office, can pass it on to the Home Office and ensure you get a response. This has the benefit of highlighting difficulties communicating with the Home Office to MPs.

The Home Office is the lead government department for immigration and crime. The Home Office's areas of responsibility include police, counter-terrorism, passports and drugs policy. The Home Office is lead by the Home Secretary and five other ministers.[1] The Home Office is often referred to in official documents and in Parliament by its former name 'the Home Department'.[2,3]

The Football Banning Orders Authority (FBOA) is part of the Home Office.
