What identification is required?
Legal representatives (i.e. official representative for resident) wishing to visit detainees must make an appointment with the IRC. On arrival, legal representatives must provide:
Any photographic ID, as described in paragraph 16 in the Visits DSO;
Identity card issued by their firm or chambers, or business card;
Be able to identify the detainee(s) to be visited by providing name, date of birth and/or the Home Office case identification number.
All visitors to Gatwick IRC are searched, biometrically fingerprinted and have their photograph taken as part of the visit clearance procedure. This is necessary to speed up identification, entering and exiting the visitor centre.
