Asylum applies to people who are in the UK and are in fear of returning to their country of origin for reasons based on race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion. Granting ‘asylum’ means giving someone permission to remain in another country due to the risk of persecution in their home country. Those who have received a positive decision can then seek refuge and are called refugees.
The right to claim asylum is in international law and this is part of UK legislation so anyone can make a claim. Those seeking protection are entitled to stay in the UK while awaiting the final decision.
