Report immigration crime or smuggling
This page explains how you can report suspected immigration crime (such as illegal immigration or illegally employing foreign workers), smuggling or terrorism.
We take public reports of crime seriously. If you suspect that someone is working illegally, has no right to be in the UK or is involved in smuggling, we want to hear from you.
Reporting crime online
You can report your suspicions in confidence using our reporting form.
Please complete as much of the form as you can. But do not worry if you cannot answer all of the questions - and do not put yourself in danger by trying to discover more information.
Any information that you provide will be handled in confidence. You can give us your name and address if you wish, but you do not need to do so.
