The Home Office collects and records a broad range of personal and case specific information via electronic systems which varies on a case to case basis depending on which route the application takes.
For example, we collect information to help establish identity, including biometrics.
Other non-electronic information may also be collected and stored by teams and this would be extremely difficult to quantify. For example, information about the reasons why the applicant is claiming asylum could be a record of oral testimony, written statements or other documentary they wish to submit in support of their claim.
