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, the USCIS will notify you of the asylum office serving your area.

A Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal is filed at the appropriate lockbox for your place of residence.

If you live in Florida or Texas, mail your I-589 to:
