Your Compass in Seeking Asylum and International Protection. Navigating the Path to Safety and Security.

Asylum and International Protection are closely related concepts. While they both involve seeking protection in Ireland due to a well-founded fear of persecution in one's home country, there are some subtle differences in their legal definitions and processes.

Asylum refers to the protection granted to individuals who meet the legal criteria of a refugee as defined by the Refugee Act 1996. An individual must demonstrate a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. The asylum process involves submitting an application, attending an interview with the authorities, and providing evidence to support the claim for protection.

International Protection is a broader term that encompasses both refugee status and subsidiary protection, which may be granted to individuals who do not meet the definition of a refugee but are at risk of serious harm if returned to their home country. This can include threats to life, freedom, or inhumane treatment. The International Protection process involves a comprehensive assessment of the individual's circumstances to determine the appropriate form of protection.
