What is a Humanitarian Protection Application?

A Humanitarian Protection Application is a form of asylum protection available to individuals who do not qualify as refugees but are unable to return to their home country due to serious harm or persecution.

Who is eligible to apply for Humanitarian Protection?

Eligibility for Humanitarian Protection is determined based on an individual's circumstances, including the risk of serious harm or persecution they would face upon return to their home country. This may include individuals fleeing conflict, violence, or human rights abuses.

How is Humanitarian Protection different from Refugee Status?

While both Humanitarian Protection and Refugee Status offer protection to individuals in need, they are based on different criteria. Refugee Status is granted to individuals who meet the definition of a refugee under the Refugee Convention, while Humanitarian Protection is granted based on the risk of serious harm or persecution.

What evidence is required to support a Humanitarian Protection Application?

Supporting evidence for a Humanitarian Protection Application may include documentation of the applicant's personal circumstances, country conditions reports, medical reports, witness statements, and any other relevant evidence demonstrating the risk of harm or persecution they would face if returned to their home country.

How long does it take to process a Humanitarian Protection Application?

Processing times for Humanitarian Protection Applications vary depending on the individual circumstances of the case and the workload of the Home Office. It is essential to seek legal advice to understand the expected processing times and ensure your application is prepared correctly.

Can I appeal a refusal of a Humanitarian Protection Application?

Yes, if your Humanitarian Protection Application is refused, you may have the right to appeal the decision to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber). Our experienced solicitors can assist you in preparing and presenting your appeal to challenge the refusal.

What if I have previously been refused asylum or protection in the UK?

If you have previously been refused asylum or protection in the UK, you may still be eligible to apply for Humanitarian Protection if there has been a change in your circumstances or new evidence has come to light. Our solicitors can assess your situation and advise you on the best course of action.
