The deadline for the return of the IPO 2 International Protection Questionnaire to the IPO is 20 working days from the day you receive the questionnaire.


The International Protection Office is flexible on this return date.  Extra time is allowed to complete the Questionnaire where something happens, such as illness, to delay completion.  Extra time is allowed for the receipt of legal advice if required.


Once the Questionnaire has been returned to the IPO it is still possible for you or your legal adviser to provide additional information.  You should provide this information no later than two weeks before your interview.


Please be aware that repeated requests for extra time may not be granted.  They will not only delay consideration of your application, but may give rise to you being deemed as not cooperating with the protection process.
