Asylum - Frequently Asked Questions


What should I bring with me to the Asylum interview?

You should also bring the following if available:

  • You have the right to bring a representative or immigration lawyer to the Asylum interview
  • You must bring an interpreter if you are not fluent in English
  • If your spouse and/or children who were under 21 at the time you filed your application are included in your Asylum application as dependents, they must also appear for the interview and bring any identity or travel documents they have in their possession. Although you are required to list all of your family members on your application, you only need to bring those to the interview that will be included as dependents in the Asylum decision
  • Some form of identification, including any passport(s), other travel or identification documents, or Form I-94 Arrival-Departure Record
  • An immigrant visa is not yet available
  • Originals of any birth certificates, marriage certificates, or other documents you previously submitted with your Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal
  • A copy of your Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal and other supplementary material that you previously submitted
  • Any additional available items documenting your claim that you have not already submitted with your application

Note: Any document in a language other than English must be accompanied by an adequate English translation that the translator has certified as complete and correct, and by the translator’s certification that he or she is competent to translate into English the language used in the document.
