Refugee status, humanitarian protection & discretionary leave

UK asylum claims

Fresh UK asylum claims

Asylum is protection given to anyone who is fleeing persecution in their own country. It is given under the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. To be recognised as a refugee, you must have left your country and be unable to go back because you have a well-founded fear of persecution.

Family reunion

The family members of a refugee or a person with humanitarian protection leave can apply for family reunion to join them in the UK.

If you are a recognised refugee or have been given humanitarian protection in the UK, UKVI allows you to be reunited with your family members although exceptional case funding may have to be applied for.
