Abstract

1. This written evidence only addresses the issue concerning ‘safe and legal routes’ and their compatibility with the UK’s human rights obligations. In doing so, it addresses questions one and two of the ‘call for evidence’.
2. It is imperative for the Government to reconsider its existing policies that relate to border control and border enforcement as there is an urgent need to create safe and legal routes of entry to the UK to ensure that further senseless loss of life does not occur on/around its shores.
3. The Home Office expects individuals that are fleeing persecution to be physically present in the UK before they can lodge an application for asylum. The rationale behind the introduction of ‘safe and legal routes’ is to ensure that asylum seekers that are fleeing persecution can travel to the UK without holding a visa.
