Course-focused and comprehensive, the Textbook on series provides an accessible overview of the key areas on the law curriculum. This chapter describes the asylum process from application through to cessation of refugee status. The first two sections deal with entering the UK to claim asylum, and with the asylum application and decision-making; the third with the different routes through which an asylum claim can be processed, including ‘safe’ country of origin provisions and non-suspensive appeals, and returns to third countries pursuant to the Dublin Regulation. The fourth section concerns penalties connected with seeking asylum. The final sections cover remedies for victims of trafficking, and other procedures after appeal rights are exhausted, or asylum has been granted.
