Deportation Matters

Q: My relative is being deported by a foreign country. What kind of assistance can the Indian Embassy/Consulate provide to prevent this deportation?

Deportation can be done by a foreign country when a foreigner violates the immigration laws of that country. In most cases, the Indian Embassy/Consulate will not be able to intervene in preventing such deportation for violation of immigration laws. However, in cases where the Indian national concerned may not be at fault or feels he is being unfairly deported, this can be brought to the notice of the Indian Embassy/Consulate, so that it can be taken up with the local immigration authorities concerned.
