Who Can Seek Asylum in the U.S.?

The first step in applying for asylum is finding out if you are eligible. Asylum status is a form of legal protection meant only for those who have fled their home country for their own safety and fear returning because of the persecution they may face. This persecution could involve threats, torture, violence, unlawful imprisonment, or the denial of fundamental human rights and freedoms.

Asylum is granted to individuals who have suffered or fear persecution based on one of five grounds, including:

  • Religion
  • Race
  • Nationality
  • Political opinion
  • Social membership

If you have experienced persecution based on any of these five grounds, you may be eligible for asylum status in the U.S. Our knowledgeable immigration lawyer can help you prepare an application and gather the necessary evidence to prove your claim.

The U.S. government does not charge a fee to apply, so there is nothing to lose. The way you entered the United States and your current immigration status also do not impede your ability to apply.
