Asylum - Frequently Asked Questions


What are the benefits of Asylee status?

You will receive the following benefits on asylee status:

  • Receive an I-94 Arrival - Departure Document documenting that you are able to remain indefinitely in the U.S. as an asylee
  • Be authorized to work in the U.S. for as long as you remain in asylee status. You may obtain a photo-identity document from USCIS evidencing your employment authorization by applying for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD)
  • Be able to request derivative Asylum status for any spouse or child (unmarried and under 21 years of age as of the date you filed the Asylum application, as long as your Asylum application was pending on or after August 6, 2002) who was not included as a dependent in your Asylum decision and with whom you have a qualifying relationship

Can my Asylum status be terminated?

Yes, your asylum status may be terminated if you:

  • No longer have a well founded fear of persecution because of a fundamental change in circumstances
  • Have obtained protection from another country
  • Have committed certain crimes or engaged in other activity that makes you ineligible to retain Asylum status in the U.S.

What is a recommended approval of Asylum?

You will receive a recommended approval of Asylum if an Asylum Officer has made a preliminary determination to grant you Asylum, but the USCIS has not received the results from the mandatory, confidential investigation of your identity and background. If the results reveal derogatory information that affects your eligibility for Asylum, the USCIS may deny your request for Asylum or refer it to an Immigration Judge for further consideration.
