ABOUT THIS SERVICE

Our Asylum Services

An asylum seeker is someone who is seeking refuge in the United Kingdom. Individuals can make an asylum claim if they have reason to fear persecution if they return to their home country. They become refugees if they are recognised as such by the Home Office or if they are successful after an appeal to an Immigration Judge.

An application for Asylum if successful will protect individuals from being returned to their home country where they may suffer harm.

Asylum applications can be made even if the circumstances that generate the claim for asylum have occurred in the United Kingdom.

Further detail

Detailed information about our Asylum Claims service

The asylum application process is an area of immigration law that requires both specialist knowledge and commitment. It requires in-depth knowledge of UK, European and International Law. Our asylum lawyers in London are fully trained in assisting individuals with claiming asylum in the UK. We are on hand to help you with your case, whatever the circumstances.

Asylum seekers must be able to show that they are at risk of serious harm or death if returned to their home country. This is usually proved by careful knowledge of the available material on the country of origin. Our experienced immigration lawyers will be able to advise on the latest country guidance cases from the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal, the latest information and reports from reputable NGO sources such as Amnesty International and the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees.

They can also advise when an expert report needs to be obtained from a leading country expert.

When applying for UK asylum, you’ll need to provide some documents to support your case. These can include identification documents, and documents to prove your address if you’re already living in the UK. Our immigration lawyers can assist you with gathering the necessary documents for your application.


You’ll then need to register your asylum claim at a ‘screening’. In your screening, you’ll speak about your case with an immigration officer, and you’ll have your photograph and fingerprints taken. After your screening, the Home Office will review your case and decide whether it can be considered in the UK.

Following your screening, you will be required to attend an asylum interview where you will be asked about how you were persecuted in your country and why you’re afraid to go back to your country. An interpreter can be made available to you at the interview. Individuals are permitted to have legal representation present at their interview, and our team of immigration lawyers are available to help support you.

Your asylum application will usually be decided on within 6 months.
