If you receive Asylum Support from UKVI (UK Visas and Immigration), you’re entitled to a HC2 certificate.

This entitles you to:

  • free NHS prescriptions
  • free NHS dental treatment
  • free NHS sight tests
  • free NHS wigs and fabric supports
  • help towards the cost of glasses or contact lenses
  • help towards travel costs to receive NHS treatment

UKVI will let us know and we'll send you a certificate so you don't need to apply for one.

If you do not receive Asylum Support and have not been given a HC2 certificate from UKVI, you can apply for help by completing a HC1 application.
