According to the Refugee Convention, there is no requirement to claim asylum in the first country that an asylum seeker arrives in.
However, under the Dublin Regulation (an EU law), a person claiming asylum can only do so in one European Union country. This is usually the first EU country that a person arrives in. The purpose behind the law was so that only one application for asylum is made in a member state that upholds the Dublin Regulation.
The UK was legally obliged to remain bound under this legislation until 31 December 2020. Since 1 January 2021, the Dublin Regulation no longer applies in the UK. This means that the Home Office can deem an asylum claim inadmissible if it is shown that the claimant arrived in and then later left a third country that was deemed safe for the purposes of an asylum application.
However, as a signatory to the Refugee Convention of 1951, the UK must still abide by its commitment to protecting refugees.
