Asylum Seekers

Volume 704: debated on Wednesday 29 October 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What notice and time for response the Home Office gives asylum seekers with a further right to appeal before proceeding with a re-documentation interview with the embassy of their country of origin. [HL5681]

The United Kingdom Border Agency can arrange re-documentation interviews with the embassy of asylum seekers' country of origin once a decision to refuse the application has been made. In some areas case owners will wait until the asylum seekers’ appeal rights are exhausted before seeking a re-documentation interview.
