An application for Bail can be made at any time after a person is detained. However, it may be advisable in some cases to gather key evidence (such as proposed place of accommodation) before making the application to stand a better chance of success.
There are also cases where a Bail hearing happens automatically. The law provides for an automatic bail hearing to be listed after a person has been detained for four months or for four months since their last bail hearing. Automatic bail hearings are made by the Home Office, who refer the case to the First-tier Tribunal if four months have passed since the detention began or since the last hearing.
