An asylum seeker is someone who has formally applied for refugee status but about whom no final decision has been made.

If you need advice on European nationals, workers from abroad, asylum, refugees and housing rights, please contact our housing needs team on 01423 500600, or Craven and Harrogate Districts Citizens Advice Bureau.

It might be useful to read the asylum information available through the GOV.UK website. From here you can follow the links to relevant laws and the current version of the immigration rules, as well as advice to those applying to come to or stay in the UK and those wishing to naturalise.
