Country specific asylum policy
Operational guidance notes (OGN) provide a brief summary of the general, political and human rights situation in the country and describe common types of claim. They aim to provide clear guidance on whether the main types of claim are likely to justify the grant of asylum, humanitarian protection or discretionary leave.
Country policy bulletins are issued on an ad hoc basis and aim to provide clear guidance on how to deal with particular country-specific issues arising in asylum and human rights applications.
Information in OGNs and Country policy bulletins is sourced to the most recent country of origin information.
