Hello and thanks in advance for reading!

I had a UK tourist visa which expired and I want to apply for asylum in Sweden

Can I do that or will it be impossible because the dublin regulation is still active in the UK somehow?

thank you!!

Note: I did not apply for asylum in the UK

Dear @ovikty223

Welcome to the Wefugees Community and thank you for reaching out to us. 

I tried to make some research but unfortunately could not find updated information on this topic (just some reports published a couple of months ago highlighting that EU and UK haven't agreed on post-brexit asylum policies yet). 

I will link two of our experts here. Dear @mbeon-Ruth or @mbeon-Rukundo, can you give more information on this? 

Another aspect to consider: travelling to Sweden in order to apply for asylum there will also be quite problematic - especially in these pandemic affected times.

Please don't hesitate to get back to us if you want to discuss further but also keep in mind that this platform and our experts are based in Germany and predominantly knowledgeable in German rules and regulations. 

All the best,
