Eligibility for UK Asylum

Not every person is eligible to apply for asylum in the United Kingdom. Only a person who is eligible according to the criterion of UK Government can seek asylum in the UK.  

To be recognised as a refugee, you must:

  • be unable to go back to your own country (if you’re stateless, this is the country you usually live in) because you fear persecution
  • be unable to live safely in any part of your own country
  • have failed to get protection from authorities in your own country
This persecution must be because of one of the following:
  • race
  • religion
  • nationality
  • political opinion
  • membership of a particular social group that puts you at risk because of the social, cultural, religious or political situation in your country, eg your gender, gender identity, sexual orientation

Family members

You can include family members (‘dependants’) in your application if they’re with you in the UK, including:
  • your partner
  • children under 18
