Applying for an Asylum

To qualify as a refugee, you must demonstrate that you cannot safely reside in your home country due to a well-founded fear of persecution based on:

• Your political opinion

• Your race

• Your religion

• Your nationality

• Any factors that make you vulnerable in your country’s social, cultural, religious, or political context, such as your gender or sexual orientation

At AMT Lawyers, we offer assistance with your Asylum application preparation. Our skilled Immigration Law solicitors will guide you through the process, ensuring your application meets all eligibility criteria and that you submit all necessary supporting documents accurately.

Asylum Appeal Rights

If your asylum application has been refused, you can appeal to the First-tier Tribunal in the following circumstances:

· If your protection status has been revoked.

· If your humanitarian protection claim has been refused.

· If your human rights claim has been denied.

· If your British citizenship has been revoked.

· If your residence document has been refused or revoked, or if you face deportation under the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016.

· If your status has been refused or revoked, or if the length or conditions of your stay have been altered, or if you face deportation under the EU Settlement Scheme.

· If your travel permit or family permit under the EU Settlement Scheme has been refused or revoked, or if your rights to enter or leave the UK under these permits have been restricted.

· If your permit has been refused or revoked, or if you face deportation as a frontier worker.

· If your leave has been refused or revoked, or if you face deportation as an S2 healthcare visitor.

If your appeal at the First-tier Tribunal is unsuccessful, you may have the opportunity to appeal again at the Upper Tribunal. However, you must first apply for permission. In your application, you need to explain why you believe the First-tier Tribunal judge made an error in applying the law in your case.

Our immigration solicitors are highly experienced in handling such cases promptly and can ensure you have the opportunity to appeal your immigration decision if there are valid grounds for doing so.
