A refugee is defined as someone who has fled their country because of a well founded fear of persecution because of his or her nationality, race or ethnic origin, political opinion, religion or social group.  An asylum seeker must claim asylum as soon as possible on entering the UK. If you do not then you may be denied welfare support and accommodation and can damages your chances of being approved.  f your asylum application has been refused you may be give the right to appeal.

If you have an asylum claim and it has been refused in the UK, you will normally have a right of appeal, you must lodge an appeal within the specified time limits which will be listed on your appeal forms.

The time limits are very strict. They are normally 5 business days to lodge an appeal if you are detained in the UK. if you are in the UK but not in detention, 10 business days and 28 days if you are outside of the UK.

The appeal form must be done in English and must state all of the grounds you intend to reply on, you may need to get help on completing the application form especially on any points of law and Human Rights issues.
