Asylum: Application for International Protection

Claiming Asylum

Asylum is an international protection given by a country to someone who is fleeing
persecution in their home country.
In order to asylum in the UK, the claimant must have left their country of residence and
be unable to return due to a fear of persecution.
The persecution could have resulted only because of their:
i). Race ii). Religion iii). Nationality iv). Political opinion
v). Membership of a particular social group.

Our services include high-quality translation services and thorough document checks.
We will work with you to ensure that your asylum application is completed to the highest
standard before it is submitted with the Home Office. In most instances, we also prepare a
cover letter, called a Letter of Representation, to support your asylum claim. This letter will
contain details of your case and cite immigration laws which support your claim. We will
also liaise with the Home Office while your application is being processed.
A grant of asylum can provide you a right of residence in the UK for a period of unto 5
years. You will be recognised as a Refugee and will be afforded protection against
forced removal to the persecuting state – including by means of deportation or
extradition. For individuals who face abusive and politically motivated criminal
allegations, asylum is often the safest and strongest defence against extradition.
As a recognised Refugee, your direct family members including partner and children [at
the time you fled your country] can be reunited with you in the UK.
As a refugee, you must not travel to your country of origin as it may result in the revocation
of your refugee status. Similarly, you should not involve in any serious criminal activities.
Upon completion of 5x years in the UK with a refugee leave, you can qualify to apply for
Settlement. 12x months following grant of Settlement, you can apply to become
naturalised as a British citizen.
