The Immigration Appellate Authority is today launching a website—www.iaa.gov.uk. The site features up-to-date information on the organisation, the two judicial tiers it administers and the appeal procedures that apply. The IAA website will have links to the Home Office Immigration and Nationality Directorate and Community Legal Service sites [www.ind. homeoffice.gov.uk & www.justask.org.uk]. The IAA website will provide a useful entry point to gain information on the process of applying for asylum.A key feature of the IAA site is the provision of detailed daily court lists for all the authority's hearing centres—allowing parties involved in appeals access to listing information as early as possible. Supporting the lists with on-line access to leaflets, guidance and travel maps, the website provides asylum-seekers and their representatives with easily obtained practical information.
