The Asylum Process

Migrant Help has published a detailed step-by-step guide to the asylum process. It includes information about how to claim asylum by detailing the rights you are entitled to, what to do if you feel you have been treated unfairly, what to expect at the screening interview (including information on the documents you will be given at the interview), how to apply for asylum support and how to access legal advice. It also explains what the main asylum interview is, its possible outcomes and how to prepare for it. Lastly, Migrant Help presents what to do once you have been granted ‘leave to remain’ (what to do when it is about to expire, information about the different statuses you can be given, how to appeal for refugee status, on accommodation support, working in the UK, insurance, etc.) or you have been refused asylum (information about the options available, about the possibility to appeal, to leave the UK, about detention, support, how to access legal advice, etc.).

Available in Albanian, Amharic, Arabic, Chinese Mandarin, Farsi, Kurdish Sorani, Pashto, Punjabi (Indian), Spanish, Tigrinya and Urdu (Pakistan), English
