Asylum Applications

Applicants for asylum in the UK must be able to demonstrate a ‘well founded fear of persecution’ in their home country based on a narrow range of protected characteristics or activities.

It is important to apply for asylum as soon as possible. This might be after you arrive in the UK, or if circumstances in your home country change while you are here for another reason.

The asylum process in the UK involves an initial screening interview with UK Visas & Immigration, follower by more detailed interviews and consideration of your case.

We can provide advice on asylum claims and appeals, and on claims to remain on humanitarian or human rights grounds where an asylum claim is not accepted. We advise you on what documents you will need, and on how to make your application and follow it up.

We also advise on family reunion applications for refugees and UK residents with discretionary leave to remain.

Our in-depth knowledge and vast experience of Refugee and Human Rights Law allows us to provide a comprehensive assessment of your chances of success in light of current legislation, case law and Home Office policy.
