Details

Asylum seekers temporarily admitted to the UK may be supported under section 4(1) of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 if they meet certain eligibility criteria.

Section 4(1) of the 1999 act was repealed on 15 January 2018 by the Immigration Act 2016, but anyone supported on it at that time continues to be eligible to receive it under transitional arrangements, unless and until a later decision is made that they are no longer eligible to receive it.

This guidance covers background and legislative provisions.
