Seeking Asylum in the US

The United States is one of the most attractive countries for political asylum. First of all, this is connected with the rights and freedoms that a person receives.

      Benefits of Asylum in the USA

  • The right to submit documents for a work permit (EAD – Employment authorization document) 150 days after the confirmation of the application. You can officially work with EAD even before deciding on your asylum application. When granted political asylum, you automatically receive EAD.

  • The right to become a permanent resident and apply for a Green Card one year after receiving asylum.
  • The right to reunite with the family remaining abroad (spouse and unmarried children under 21 years old) within 2 years after receiving asylum.
  • The right to leave the United States and travel the world (except for the country from which you fled).
  • The right to financial benefits, medical insurance and social assistance, assistance in adaptation, learning English and employment through the Office of refugee resettlement (ORR).
