Asylum Seeker Ireland

What is an Asylum Seeker?

An asylum seeker is a person who has left their country and is seeking protection in another country. Asylum seekers are also called international protection applicants.
Seeking asylum is a human right. When you ask for asylum at the border of a country, that country’s authorities must examine your application. If you ask for asylum in Ireland, you must make an application for international protection. While you are waiting for a decision on your application, the Irish State gives you accommodation, food, and medical care. You are entitled to legal aid to help you with your application and appeals (if needed).
When your application has been processed, you may be either:
* Declared a refugee
* Granted subsidiary protection status
* Granted permission to remain for humanitarian reasons
* Refused international protection
You can appeal a refusal to the International Protection Appeals Tribunal.
