USCIS Asylum Offices

USCIS Asylum Offices

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has eight (8) asylum offices within the United States. The mission of the U.S. Asylum Program is to implement asylum laws in a way that is fair, timely, and consistent with international humanitarian principles and the domestic tradition of providing refuge for the oppressed. After you have filed an asylum application with the appropriate service center, the USCIS will notify you of the asylum fffice serving your area.

A Form I-589 is also filed at service centers. Do not mail an initial asylum application to an asylum office. However, as the list demonstrates, asylum applications are not always filed at the same service center that accepts other applications from residents of that area. Therefore, prospective asylum applicants should check the list to determine with which service center they should file their asylum application. After your asylum application has been received, you will be notified where to go for your asylum interview.
