Asylum is permission to remain in the UK granted by the Home Office. Any non-UK nationals with a serious fear of returning to their home country can apply for asylum.
The 1951 Refugee Convention* governs the law surrounding the granting of Asylum. The law states that if you have a well-founded fear of persecution because of your race, religion, political opinion, nationality or even a social group in danger, then you are eligible to apply for asylum.
If you did not apply for the asylum at the airport or seaport on your arrival in the UK, our team of immigration lawyers can help you make your claim for asylum.
Imaan solicitors can arrange for a free detailed consultation over the telephone, Skype or in person at our office in Manchester. Further more, we advise you and prepare all the necessary applications and statements for you. Should you choose, we can attend any appointments or hearings you have before the UK Visas and Immigration authority or the Immigration Tribunals for your case.
The details required
In order to succeed in your application for asylum we need you to provide us:
- The details of your home country and place of residence.
- Personal and family circumstances.
- Identification documents.
- Evidence supporting your fear of persecution because of your race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership of a particular social group. You also need to show why the government of your home country is unwilling/failing to protect you.
- Information about your residence in the UK.
Once we gather everything we need we can prepare a case for asylum. Furthermore, work towards securing your status legally in the UK.
Timing is absolutely crucial with asylum applications because any delays in making the claim for asylum can go against you.

* It is also possible for a person to apply to remain in the UK if removing them would be in breach of their rights laid down in the 1950 European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). This is often called a human rights claim. The ECHR contains a number of ‘Articles’ of protected rights. Most human rights claims are based on Article 3 (prohibition on torture and inhuman or degrading treatment) or Article 8 (right to respect for family life and private life). A human rights claim can be part of an asylum claim under the Refugee Convention, or it can stand alone.
