A person who falls under a definition of refugee is identified in Article 1 of the Refugee Convention. To be successfully recognised as a refugee one must owe a well- founded fear of persecution for one of the 5 reasons: (1) race; (2) religion; (3) nationality; (4) membership of a particular social group; (5) political opinion, must be outside the country of his nationality or former habitual residence and must be unable or unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country.
We have experience from years dealing with refugees from all over the world. We appreciate that all asylum seekers are vulnerable and we therefore give additional care to these applicants ensuring strict confidentiality.
Anglia Immigration Law provides a wide range of services tailored to refugees needs. We provide assistance through the whole process of an asylum claim starting with a screening interview followed by a substantive interview, submission of the evidence and representations to the Home Office, follow up with the Home Office until the decision is made.
A person might sometimes be granted humanitarian protection instead of a refugee status if the Secretary of State decides that he has a well- founded fear of persecution in his country for a non-Convention reason.
If the decision is negative and the asylum claim is refused, we advise clients on their right of appeal and merits of their case. We can help with drafting grounds of appeal and submitting notice of appeal to the Tribunal. We are fully qualified and highly experienced to represent clients before the First-Tier and Upper Tribunals.
In an event of the asylum application being granted, you may require help to apply for family reunion to bring your family to the UK. Please contact us for more information about the requirements you would need to meet to bring your family to the UK under the family reunion policy.
Anglia Immigration Law also provides help for failed asylum seekers giving advice and assistance submitting fresh claims. In order to make a fresh claim you must have new evidence to back it up. This might be presented in a form of a disclosure of the fact you have not disclosed before, new documents from your country which you have not had before, expert reports, change in conditions in your country, religious conversion, your sexuality, activities in the UK etc. For more information please contact us on 01603 927676 to speak directly to an asylum specialist.
