The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
At IAS, we are passionate about helping others. As a result, we are dedicated to assisting those who are looking to the UK for a safe refuge for themselves, their families and their loved ones.
If you are unable to return to your home country because you fear persecution or danger, then IAS can help. You can apply for asylum in the UK if your race, religion, nationality or political opinion means you risk persecution in your national country.
If you have not applied for asylum or been granted refugee status and you have entered the UK, you may risk being detained by UK border control. If you are currently being detained in the UK for a breach of asylum laws then we can provide urgent support. This support includes help with your application for bail and your appeal process. One of our dedicated immigration lawyers will arrange a meeting with you and visit the UK Immigration Detention Centre where you are being held. We will organise family visits, arrange bail and act as your legal representative if your appeal is taken to a Tribunal.
For more information on the different Asylum and Detainee options available for you, please see below.
