Submit new evidence to support your asylum claim

You can submit new evidence if your asylum claim has been refused or withdrawn and you have no more right to appeal. This is called a ‘further submission’.

The new evidence must be something that you didn’t have until now.

You can be prosecuted and forced to leave the UK if you give false evidence.

You can only submit new evidence if you’ve been through every available appeal process.

You can’t submit new evidence from outside the UK.

Submit your evidence

You must submit your evidence in person at the Further Submissions Unit (FSU) in Liverpool, unless you have permission to send it by post or fax.

Call the FSU to make an appointment.

You must also bring all the following documents (if you have them) to prove your identity:

  • valid passport
  • IS96 with photograph
  • previous immigration status document
  • driving licence (if you’ve already submitted a photo of yourself)

You’ll usually receive a decision within 5 working days.

You may be held in detention or forced to leave the UK if your further submissions are refused.

Get permission to send by post or fax

Call the FSU to ask for permission to submit evidence by post or fax.

You’ll only get permission if you’re:

  • disabled or ill and unable to travel
  • in prison or in detention
  • an unaccompanied asylum-seeking child

Send proof that you’re eligible when you submit your new evidence.
