This website makes all correspondence public. Do not use this site for messages about your personal circumstances, instead use the direct contact information published by the Home Office

We understand that it can be difficult to get a response from the Home Office. If you are in the UK we suggest contacting your local Member of Parliament, they, or their office, will be able to pass on your correspondence and ensure you get a response. You can find, and write to, your MP via WriteToThem.com.

If you want to email the Home Office directly yourself you can try their email addresses public.enquiries@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk or DCAT@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk (Digital Correspondence Allocation Team) or ukvigeneral@mailgb.custhelp.com (UK Visas and Immigration).

Members of the WhatDoTheyKnow team empathise with the problems being faced by those struggling to contact the Home Office and have tried to take action to improve the situation.

Do NOT use this page to contact the Home Office about your passport, ILR or other documents, or about your application for asylum.

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.[2] The Home Office is often referred to in official documents and in Parliament by its former name 'the Home Department'.[3]
