UCT Refugee Rights Unit Celebrates World Refugee Day by distributing practical guides that are intended to assist refugees, legal practitioners, social workers and government officials in understanding and ensuring the rights of refugees are respected.
Fatima Khan, Director of the Refugee Rights Unit, presented a keynote address at the Refugee Law Initiative's 5th Annual Conference, Aging Gracefully? The 1951 Convention at 70.
This month saw an important development in the years-long campaign and litigation to compel the Department of Home Affairs to fully reopen the Cape Town Refugee Reception Office (RRO).
The Department of Home Affairs will be renewing refugee and asylum permits that have expired from 26 February 2020.
The process is straightforward and is completed via email to the relevant Refugee Reception Office (RRO). The RRO will respond to your application with instructions to be completed, and when approved will issue an asylum seeker or refugee with a renewed permit, which is sent to you via email.
