Claiming asylum

Asylum allows people who are refugees to stay in the UK. A refugee is someone who leaves the country they come from because they fear persecution (being harmed) because of their race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular group, or political beliefs.

Removal and deportation

In some circumstances you may be told that you have to leave the UK. This can be very distressing. But you do have rights. The authorities should follow a standard procedure before they can make you leave. If you are in this position, or you think it may happen to you in future, you should get legal advice as soon as possible.
