If you are fleeing from a country or are being forced to return to a country where you could be persecuted, you may want to seek asylum in the UK. To do that, you need to complete an asylum application. Talk to us for asylum application advice.
Seeking asylum is when you look for protection from another country because you are fleeing persecution in your own country. Asylum is provided for under the United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. To be recognised as a refugee, you must have left your country and be unable to go back because you are afraid that you will be mistreated because of:
- your race
- your religion
- your nationality
- your political opinion
- membership of a particular group
The UK Government must not force anyone to return to a country where they could be persecuted for the specific reasons above. This is because the Universal Declaration on Human Rights says that everyone has the right to seek and enjoy asylum from persecution and the European Convention on Human Rights says no-one should be sent to a country where there is a risk that they will face inhuman or degrading treatment. But claiming asylum can be complicated and lengthy.
