Travel to the appointment at the asylum registration centre is considered essential. Arrangements have been put in place in the Asylum Intake Units to adhere to social distancing and safety rules.

If you are at immediate risk of destitution you may attend your nearest Asylum Intake Unit without an appointment. Click here for more information.

If you have already had your interview with the Home Office and they have had enough information to make a decision on your application, they will contact your legal representative to confirm some specific details. The outcome of your asylum claim will then be sent to you and your legal representative. If your claim is rejected, you will not be forced to leave your accommodation during the coronavirus pandemic and your financial support will continue.
