Stepwise Guide to Seeking Asylum by Immigration Solicitors Accrington

The right of asylum, also known as political asylum, is when a person, victimized by his own country, seeks the protection of another independent authority or foreign country. Following is a set of steps that need to be followed when seeking asylum in the UK:-

The term “humanitarian protection” is referred to when you apply for permission to stay in our country to avoid inhumane treatment back home. This will mean that you have escaped your country to secure your human rights. Based on the information you provide, Immigration Solicitors Accrington will give you a better idea whether you are applying for humanitarian reasons of other.

Screening interview

Here you will have to appear in a ‘screening interview’ where Immigration officials will get information from you regarding how arrived and where you come from.

Your process will then be further decided upon by Immigration Officials.

Asylum interview
