Guess who offered us the chance to stay in the Dublin lll Regulation.
Ability to return asylum seekers to European countries.
After this year, the UK will not be able to use the Dublin Regulation to return asylum seekers who travel from EU member states.
The Government is hopeful that gaining the ability to negotiate new returns agreements will strengthen the UK’s ability to return people seeking asylum to other European countries, although some external commentators disagree.
Controversial changes to the Immigration Rules due to take effect on 1 January 2021 give the Home Office greater scope to treat as inadmissible asylum claims from people who have passed through, or have a connection with, a safe third country. The Government has described them as paving the way for bilateral agreements with other countries.
