If you are in Hong Kong and cannot live safely in your home country, you may need to apply for protection.
If you are afraid to go back to your home country because you might be killed, tortured or seriously harmed, or your human rights will be seriously restricted, you can apply for asylum. In Hong Kong, you can do this by making a non-refoulement claim under the Unified Screening Mechanism (USM).
This app, jointly developed by Justice Centre Hong Kong and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, is a guide that will walk you through the USM process. It will help you to:
- Understand what the USM process is;
- Understand whether you should apply;
- Understand how to make an application; and
- Know which people to speak to and where you can find them.
The app is available on both
apple app store and google play store:
For any enquiries or feedback about the app, please contact [email protected].
