Hi there,Iam Palastinian Refugee holders of Palsatinian

Customer Question

Hi there,

Iam Palastinian Refugee holders of Palsatinian travel documents issued from lebanon with my wife and kid , currently we are living in Singapore.

Currently we have a valid enrty visa to UK , and we intend to apply for Asylum seeking in UK for the following reasons:

1) am palastinian desendandnt , my father was displaced from 1948 territories which is now known as Israel , i cannot go back to my country of origin .
2) I donot want to live in Lebanon which is not my home country , wherby i cannot practice my basic rights
3) my Baby is 2 years old and he has the right to have a nationality and currently he has no country , he is a refugee.
3) Am afraid going back to lebanon, as last time i was there i was expressing my opinion about the syrian authorities and the torture they do to thier people, i was later got followed on the road by pro Syrians armed , i was dragged out of my car beaten, and threatend to kill my wife and son in case i was heard talking about such crimes of the syrian regimes , i didnt report it to police coz as everyone knows , Lebanon now is ruled by pro syrian government and pro Syrian Hizbo Allah is ruling the country , if i report it am afraid the problem will be worse .

I need to know how can i claim Asylum in Uk , and what possibilities do i have for the sucess and what is the procedure, noting that i have a valid visa entry to Uk along with my wife and kid.

Regards,
