Asylum: Interviews

Question for Home Office

UIN HL6175, tabled on 25 June 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government for which languages there are interpreters available for asylum seekers’ interviews.

Answered on

9 July 2020

A definitive list of languages is not available as both demand for different languages and provision of interpreter services to meet the demand constantly change. Such services for asylum interviews are principally organised through the Home Office Interpreter Operation Unit. The Home Office also maintains ongoing arrangements with external providers in case demand cannot be fully met internally.
