refugee status and subsidiary protection applications for International Protection
- A person can apply for asylum if you are in Ireland and you are unable to return to your home country because you fear persecution. Under the new system the International Protection Office (IPO) will initially review your case. Any negative decision by the International Protection Office (IPO) refusing refugee status or subsidiary protection can be appealed to the International Protection Appeals Tribunal (IPAT).
- Legal advice and representation in relation to applications for refugee status and subsidiary protection including legal representation in appeals to the International Protection Appeals Tribunal (IPAT).
- We provide advice and representation in relation to leave to remain applications for persons who do not qualify for refugee status or for Subsidiary Protection, but who may be given permission to stay in Ireland for humanitarian or other reasons. Persons who are granted leave to remain will be given residence permission in Ireland and many of the same rights as an Irish citizen.
