Hi,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

If you are referring to claiming asylum in the UK, what would happen is that the person claiming would tell the UK Border Official they meet straight after disembarking the plane that they wish to claim asylum.


They would then be taken to a UKBA holding cell in the airport before being taken to the nearest asylum processing centre and initiate their asylum claim. If landing in Gatwick or heathrow they would be taken to the Croydon centre.


But no, they simply state they wish to claim asylum at the airport. The important part - the claim itself - is processed via a processing centre over a number of months and starting either on the day or the day after stating at the airport.

 

 

 

I will answer your follow up questions you may have.


Kind regards,


Tom

Hi,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

Claiming Asylum is very difficult. In practice only 19 of 100 applications are actually accepted.

 

In order to claim asylum you must show that you have a well founded fear of persecution because of:-

  • § race;
  • § religion;
  • § nationality;
  • § political opinion; or
  • § membership of a particular social group.

 

The difficulty you will have is in proving there is a fear of persecution. It cannot just be because of your family because presumably you could avoid your family if you wished to. It has to be a threat coming from all across society, it would also have to affect you to an extent.

 

If you can demonstrate that the children would suffer persecution by producing evidence of other deaf persons and children who have recently suffered such persecution (ie. Newspaper reports, testimonials, academic evidence) then you may have a small chance of claiming asylum on this basis. It would only be a very, very small chance though

 

I will answer your follow up questions you may have.


Kind regards,


Tom

Hi,

 

It's as I have explained above. The key thing is documentary evidence, start to find this and builld a file. Document your children's experiences in a diary and get supporting statements.

Good luck
