    my timeline is:
    - on May 16 2018 i-485 application receive to NSC (live in Portland, Oregon)
    - on October 31 2018 interview was done
    - the status now “Case was transferred for jurisdiction”
    I did submit 2-3 e-requests but the only response (pending).
    it’s now 18 months of waiting.
    a question for the people who got their approval after more than a year of the application, is it possible to receive the approval without retaking the medical, or They will ask me to take the medical again?

    Thanks
    On what basis was your filed I485 on?

    Asylee-based I485?

    No. For the most part, no interview for asylee-based I485 applicants. Except in rare cases.

    Has anything significantly changed between your times of grant of asylum and application for I485? For example, asylum was obtained based on sexual orientation but you are now married to the opposite sex as of filing for the green card? Or asylum obtained based on religious persecution (minority Christian in a majority Islamic country) and you now practice Islam?
    Thank you for your respond. Nothing has changed between times of grant of asylum and application for I485. Same sex, same religion, same political opinion. I've married, but my wife has Green Card and I didn't include her in my application. This transfer looks weird

    On February 21, 2019, we transferred your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, Receipt Number #0000000000, to an asylum office for processing. That office will mail you a decision or send you a request if it needs something from you.


    Has anybody had same status as me? I wrote dozen letters to Asylum Office and they said: "Your application is under review". Almost 9 month gone and nothing changed

    Is Thailand the country of persecution (COP) you claimed asylum from? If not, you may travel freely with your TD. However, the TD is NOT a US passport and if no visa is required for US citizens, you would need to obtain a Thai visa on your travel document to be able to use it to travel, because you are not yet a citizen.

    If Thailand is visa-free for Indian citizens, you still may be able to use your Indian passport to travel to Thailand. You need to understand that, and it was made clear by USCIS, all green card holders are free to travel the whole world with their national passport. A former asylee who adjusted to green card holder has voluntarily 'dis-availed' himself of his asylee status and its protections thereof, and has become a permanent resident just like others, and is free to travel around the world with their national passport or a TD if they choose. However, excessive multiple travels to and/or extended periods of stay in one's COP might be a possible cause for concern during the citizenship interview. One or two trips to COP isn't usually an issue at the N400 interview, especially if well explained why you had to travel and actions you took to keep yourself safe while there. Several permanent residents based on asylum with one or two trips to their COP have obtained citizenship recently without any issues whatsoever.

    I also did the same, contacted both Congressman and Omdurman about 3 weeks ago, since that I never heard anything from them, is it a normal? Shouldn't they at least reply back to me, saying that your request was rejected, pending, in progress etc.?
    I'm from New Jersey.

    Hello Asylee Expert,
    I read your previous post. Can you tell us how long it took to get a response from Congressman and U.S. Ombudsman. i just recently created a inquiry with my congresswoman. my case has been overall 18 month. Case transferred from NSC to TSC. I’m from new york as well. Should I contact US Ombudsman too given my time frame? Thank you for your post about the process, it was very helpful.
    In my personal opinion, If your case is pending for less than year, this measure is not for you. In your case, You should contact your congressperson and have them look into the matter for. My process was quick. I received a decision within a week of filing an inquiry with the Congressperson's office. You are welcome to contact both as you see necessary.

    Once again, It is obvious you are not reading the thread. I had the same timeline as you and my case has since approved. I contacted my congressman and also the U.S. Ombudsman Office. Scroll up further you will see the details and how my case was approved. Follow the instruction, I wish you all the best. If you are in New York, You are welcome to message me! For others, the measures indicated is for those who have been waiting over a year.
