Asylum seekers who are about to be deported to Rwanda receive deportation notices within a few days.
Officials are identifying the individuals who will be in the first wave of deportations to the East African nation.
Ministers hope the first flight will take off next month but are prepared for legal challenges.
In Whitehall it is accepted that anyone who receives a deportation order – the second stage of the deportation process – can pursue their claim in court.
About 100 migrants have so far reportedly received the initial paperwork – letters of intent – to send them on the 6,000-mile journey.
However, no flights will take off before June 6 – and there could be further delays due to court cases.
But No10 is eager for the first deportations before Boris Johnson travels to Rwanda for a Commonwealth meeting late next month.
Those flown to Rwanda will be accommodated in posh hotels.
One of them is the Desir Resort in the capital Kigali.
It features a swimming pool, free WiFi, tennis court, gym and access to a golf course.
The deportations to Rwanda will cost taxpayers £120million and are intended to deter the tens of thousands of migrants who attempt to cross the English Channel in small boats each year.
An Interior Ministry spokesman said last night: “We are fully committed to working with Rwanda to get the arrangement operational as soon as possible.”
