Abstract This article explores the background and issues relating to the plight of Eritrean Pentecostal asylum seekers, and is based on background literature on the Eritrean context and interviews with Eritrean asylum seekers in the UK. It explores the historical, political, and religious context of Eritrea and analyses the challenges presented to British immigration officials by the presence of Eritrean asylum seekers who claim to be persecuted for their Pentecostal faith. The article examines the processes from the perspective of personal narratives of asylum seekers, their reasons for fleeing their country, the documents and statements used to deny them asylum in the application process, and the characteristics of their faith that are often overlooked.
