Abu Qatada, 48, one of Europe's most influential extremists, had alleged that his conviction in Jordan was based on evidence extracted by torture.
The home secretary said she was "delighted" at the decision, calling him "a truly dangerous individual".
Abu Qatada's lawyer said she had lodged an application to appeal.
Gareth Peirce has submitted an application to the European Court of Human Rights. Her client cannot be deported until the appeal bid has been considered.
The five Law Lords who unanimously backed Abu Qatada's removal also supported the deportation of two Algerian terrorism suspects, known as RB and U, whose cases covered similar grounds.
Human rights group Amnesty International said it was "gravely concerned" about the ruling's implications.
Spokesman Nicola Duckworth said: "No-one should be deported to face a risk of torture, whatever they might be alleged or suspected to have done.
"States simply cannot pick and choose which people have human rights.
"If these individuals in question are reasonably suspected of having committed a criminal offence relating to terrorism, it is always open to the UK authorities to charge them and give them a fair trial."
