ASYLUM

Refugees are protected and defined in law by The Refugee Conventions 1951, which defines a refugee:

“someone who is unable or unwilling to return to their country of origin owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion.”

You should apply when you arrive in the UK or as soon as you think it would be unsafe for you to return to your own country.
