IMMIGRATION LAW ENQUIRIES

As soon as reasonably practicable


Section 55 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 gives the Home Secretary power to deny support to asylum seekers who have not applied for asylum ‘as soon as reasonably practicable’. In December 2003, the Home Secretary provided further clarification by announcing that asylum seekers would be considered to have made their claim ‘as soon as reasonably practicable’ if they could give ‘credible explanation’ of how they arrived in the UK within three days of applying for asylum. However, support and accommodation must be provided if the applicant would have to live in inhuman or degrading circumstances otherwise.
