Asylum Visa

Asylum Visa

Asylum Visa. To apply for asylum affirmatively or defensively, file a Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, within 1 year of your arrival to the United States. To include your child as a dependent on your application, the child must be under 21 years old and unmarried. However, international law recognizes that the refugee status determination process can be lengthy and complex. Therefore, asylum seekers should receive certain protections before a state has officially recognized them as refugees. Eligibility for state funded programs varies by state. There is no fee to apply for asylum. If the government denies your application for asylum, removal proceedings will likely start, but you may be able to appeal the decision and continue seeking asylum. Taking the right steps after a denial can help increase your chances of successfully applying for asylum.
