Through Refugee or Asylum Status

Refugees and asylees can apply for a Green Card.

You may be eligible for asylum if you have suffered persecution or fear that you will suffer persecution due to:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Membership in a particular social group
  • Political opinion

You may include your spouse and children who are unmarried and under 21 years of age who are in the United States on your application at the time you file or at any time until a final decision is made on your case.
