The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
A person can claim asylum (permission to stay in another country) when they are at risk of being persecuted within their own country. This can be because of their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership of a particular social group. To claim asylum in the UK, you must be unable to seek help from your own national country’s authorities. You must claim asylum from within the UK or from the UK border. The asylum process includes an application, an interview, and an extensive screening process.
You are advised to gain legal advice before or while going through the claiming asylum process. Our team of dedicated lawyers can help you to be fully prepared for this. We can provide urgent assistance and, with offices around the country, we will be able to meet with you whatever your location. Our services include a full document check and preparation of a Letter of Representation for those seeking asylum. This acts as a cover letter for your application and details the merits of your case while referencing any supporting immigration laws. Get in touch with us on 0333 363 8577 today or make an enquiry online to speak with one of our immigration lawyers about your asylum application.
You must apply for asylum from within the UK or at the UK border, applications are usually made with an online tool.
It is important to submit your application for asylum as soon as you realise you cannot return to your home country.
It usually takes about six months before a decision on whether to grant asylum to you is made by the Home Office.
However, it can take longer if documents need to be verified or more information is needed.
