Refugee- Frequently Asked Questions


How do I apply for Refugee status in the U.S.?

You must go through the following steps to apply for Refugee status:

  • If you believe that you are in need of protection, you may wish to make your concern known to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) or to an international non profit voluntary agency
  • If either of these organizations is unavailable to you, you should contact the nearest American embassy or consulate
  • Where appropriate, a representative from one of these organizations will discuss your situation with you to find out if you might be eligible to apply for resettlement in the U.S.
  • If eligible, you must then complete a packet of forms, and the USCIS will conduct a formal interview with you to determine if you qualify for refugee status
  • If the USCIS determines that you should be resettled in the U.S. as a refugee, the State Department, together with other organizations, will then complete your processing
