Yes. This can happen if the asylum application is not made within 3 months of the person‘s arrival in the UK, or if the applicant has previously sought asylum in the UK and was refused. Other reasons for asylum application rejection in the UK are if the applicant has submitted the application for asylum outside the UK and there are reasonable grounds to believe that the applicant has not come directly from a territory where their life or freedom was threatened.
The documents required for asylum application in the UK include a valid passport, any documents which confirm identity, and documents that confirm the applicant‘s nationality.
Grounds for asylum application in the UK are that the applicant fears persecution in their home country on grounds of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion.
Dublin III Regulation replaced Dublin II Regulation, which in a turn replaced the Dublin Convention.
The Dublin Regulation is a treaty which sets out the criteria and mechanisms for determining the EU Member State responsible for examining an application for international protection lodged in one of the EU Member States by a third–country national or a stateless person.
The key points of Dublin convention are that the asylum seeker must make an application for asylum to the first country they enter, that the asylum seeker must provide their fingerprints, and that the asylum seeker should not be removed to a country where they may be at risk.
The role of the Dublin convention in asylum applications is that the country where the asylum seeker first arrived in the European Union is responsible for the application.
There are other types of cases, which are considered as complicated ones. Sterling Law is proud of the number of cases, it has helped its clients to succeed in. They refer to Human rights protection or claiming asylum in the UK. A lot of migrants, who are forced to leave their homes due to various reasons, seeking better life options by relocating to developed countries or applying for asylum support there. The number of such migrants has an increasing character every year. The reasons for seeking asylum can include but not limited to poverty, lack of access to healthcare, education, water, food, housing, the consequences of environmental degradation and climate change etc. International law clearly states that people have a human right to immigrate to other states.
The human right to immigrate is not absolute, it can be restricted in certain circumstances. Outside these circumstances, however, immigration restrictions are unjust. We believe that the right to immigrate constitutes basic human liberties and it should be protected.
Referring to the UK legislation, individuals can apply for asylum to stay in the UK as a refugee in case they are unable to live safely in any part of their own country because they fear persecution there. This persecution is usually based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion etc. After the application has been submitted, the person will have to have a meeting with an immigration officer and then an asylum interview with a caseworker. One of the requirements that British law imposes is that the applicant has failed to get protection from authorities in your own country.
If you provide or attempt to provide false information in your application, you can be charged with up to 2 years imprisonment in the UK.
It is obvious that false information can be provided by intent as well as by mistake. Therefore, the best way to prepare your application is to do it with an experienced lawyer, who will guide you through the application process professionally.CONSULTATION

Our immigration team achieved great success in representing a client in her appeal against the Home Office’s decision to refuse issuance of the Residence Card as an extended family member of an EEA national.
Our client, a Ukrainian national entered the UK as a Family Permit holder and was residing in the UK as an extended family member of an EEA national (her father-in-law was Portuguese). Our client lived with her husband and son, whose residence in the UK was also dependent on the same EEA national.
Our client, a non-EEA national, initially obtained a residence card as the spouse of an EEA national. Our client subsequently divorced from his EEA national spouse and obtained a residence card under the Retained Rights route. The client then applied for permanent residence, which was refused and a subsequent appeal was dismissed by First-Tier Tribunal as the Judge wrongly thought the client needed to be a qualified person, not his EEA national spouse during the time their marriage lasted. Permission to appeal on this basis was granted.
In the recent case of Topadar v Secretary of State for the Home Department  EWCA Civ 1525 the Court of Appeal examined two questions:
At what point is an immigration application decided by the Home Office?
Is it procedurally unfair for the Home Office to refuse an application due to the applicant’s sponsor (i.e. their employer) failing to provide additional information (without the applicant ever being made aware of the request)?
The Court of Appeal decided:
Sterling Law has successfully challenged a decision by Student Finance England to refuse a student loan to a settled non-EU national because it was not believed that he met the lawful residence requirements.
Excellent news; adult dependent relative appeal allowed by the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber)!
Our client, an Indian national, came to the UK with her husband lawfully to visit their son and grandchildren, who are British nationals. Sadly, her husband passed away suddenly while they were in the UK. Our client had a history of dementia with Parkinson’s disease along with anxiety and depression, which made her return to India unachievable.
