Claiming Asylum in the UK
The right to claim asylum in another country is one that was established by the United Nations Refugee Convention in 1951. 146 countries agreed, and are bound to its regulations under international law. In the UK, a person has the lawful right to claim asylum if they cannot return to their country of origin for fear of persecution.
There are eligibility criteria that must be satisfied in order for a successful asylum claim to be made. The asylum claim process can be lengthy and demanding. It begins upon arrival in the UK when an initial asylum application must be made on the basis of having left the applicant’s country of origin with the inability to return due to the threat of persecution which has endangered the applicant’s life.
After the initial application for asylum at a border port or airport, a meeting with a Home Office immigration officer will be held which is commonly regarded as ‘screening’, these meetings are held in-person and you are obligated to bring any relevant documents with you to support your asylum case.
The Home Office will then make a decision on whether your asylum claim can be treated or not. If you receive confirmation that you can make a claim, you will subsequently be required to attend a substantive asylum interview with a caseworker.
This interview is your opportunity to explain in detail the reasons for your asylum claim- you are entitled to bring an immigration lawyer or solicitor with you to this meeting. This is where our OISC immigration experts come in.
You will receive a decision on your application within approximately 6 months from the date of this appointment. In the meantime when your claim is under processing, you will likely not be allowed to work and you may even be detained. If your claim application is unsuccessful, you may have the right to appeal.
