A grant of asylum can provide you a right of residence in the UK for a period of 5 years. You will be recognized 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 recognized Refugee, your direct family members including your 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 the grant of Settlement, you can apply to become naturalized as a British citizen.
