Any document presented by an applicant at their screening interview in relation to their identity, nationality or route taken to the UK is retained by the screening officer, the applicant is given a copy, and a copy placed on file.
The screening form includes a question 7.38 “What other documents do you have (Record full details and attach copies of all documents to this screening form)”. The applicant and screening officer both sign the screening form at the end of the interview.
The Casework Integrated Database has a field for recording documents that have been submitted, the screening officer will update that field, any additional entries will be recorded under the name of the officer who added the information. CID would also record the date and time of any amendments.
It is also practice in the ASU to record on the file minute sheet documents that have been retained.
Where an individual in question is assessed as posing a security risk, and is overseas and is seeking to enter the United Kingdom, they will be excluded. Those applicants assessed as posing a security risk who are already present in the UK, we will seek to deport, consistent with our international human rights obligations.
