In the UK, an asylum seeker is someone who has asked the government for protection because they are unsafe in their country of origin.

A refugee is someone who has received a positive decision on their asylum claim, and has been granted refugee status.

Sometimes, people receive humanitarian protection instead of refugee status. This is because they did not meet the definition of a refugee, as found in the UN Refugee Convention, but would still face a real risk of serious harm if they were to return to their country of origin.

Right to Remain’s YouTube channel contains a number of useful videos about the asylum process in multiple languages. You can find the playlists linked by language, below.
