Humanitarian Protection

Humanitarian Protection

This covers a situation in which people’s applications for Asylum are refused and considerations are given immediately as to whether they qualify for Humanitarian Protection under the Immigration Rules. For them to qualify, they must show that there are substantial grounds for believing that if they are returned to their Home Countries, they will face a real risk of suffering serious harm and are unable, or owing to such risk, unwilling, to avail themselves of the protection of their countries. “Serious harm” consists of the death penalty or execution, unlawful killing, torture or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, serious and individual threat to a civilian’s life or person by reasons of indiscriminate violence in situations of international or internal armed conflict.

It will be necessary seek advice from our Immigration and Asylum Practitioners to carry out a comprehensive assessment of your circumstances to find on which ground you may be allowed to stay in the UK, such as Article 3, “Prohibition of torture, and “inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment”.
