The UK Border Agency has today announced changes to the way it registers further submissions and initial in-country asylum applications.

From 14 October 2009, further submissions – where someone whose appeal rights have been exhausted asks to have their claim re-examined owing to a change in their circumstances – will have to be made in person rather than by post.

The following arrangements will be in place:

  • Those who claimed asylum before 5 March 2007, and whose case is being managed by our case resolution directorate, will be required to make any further submissions by appointment and in person at Liverpool further submissions unit (formerly the asylum screening unit).
  • Those who claimed asylum on or after 5 March 2007 will be required to make any further submissions in person at a specified reporting centre in their region.

In addition to these changes, it will no longer be possible for initial asylum applications to be made in Liverpool, and anyone wishing to make an initial asylum application in country will be required to do so in person at the asylum screening unit in Croydon.
