You may be eligible for asylum if you are unable or unwilling to return to your home country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of:

How to Apply for Asylum

Instructions regarding where to file the Form I-589 are as follows:

  • First-time applicants file at the USCIS Service Center that has jurisdiction over their place of residence.
