You can appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Asylum Support) if:
- You have applied for asylum support and been turned down
- you were claiming asylum support and it has been stopped
The tribunal must receive your appeal within 3 days of you getting the letter about the decision - you may be able to carry on claiming asylum support (if you were already getting it) while you appeal.
The tribunal is independent of government. A judge will listen to both sides of the argument before making a decision.
