Immigration Asylum (not legally aided):

You must apply for asylum if you want to stay in the UK as a refugee. To stay in the UK as a refugee you must be unable to live safely in any part of your own country because you fear persecution there. If you are stateless, your own country is the country you usually live in.

This persecution must be because of:

  • your race;
  • your religion;
  • your nationality;
  • your political opinion; and
  • anything else that puts you at risk because of the social, cultural, religious or political situation in your country, for example, your gender, gender identity or sexual orientation.

You must have failed to get protection from authorities in your own country.
