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You can submit new evidence if your asylum claim has been refused or withdrawn and you have no more right to appeal.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 did not 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 have been through every available appeal process. 

You cannot 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.

Call the FSU to make an appointment:
