The UK governmental department that is responsible for policy issues surrounding immigration, passports, drugs, crime, the police and "counter-terrorism".

The Home Office is a UK government department that has two main sister departments that are involved in work surrounding immigration, passports and "counter-terrorism". These are: the Identity and Passport Service and the UK Border Agency.


The Home Office states that its aims and objectives are based on seven key issues:[1]

  • Help people feel safer in their homes and local communities
  • Support visible, responsive and accountable policing
  • Protect the public from terrorist attack
  • Cut crime, especially violent, drug and alcohol-related crime
  • Strengthen our borders, fast track asylum decisions, ensure and enforce compliance with our immigration laws, and boost Britain's economy
  • Safeguard people's identity and the privileges of citizenship
  • Work with our partners to build an efficient, effective and proportionate criminal justice system
