Asylum Visa to USA and Translation Services

Applying for an asylum visa to the USA is an important step if you’re seeking safety in the United States. The process can be complex, particularly due to language barriers and extensive paperwork. This guide will help you understand US Asylum Visas and show how translation services can support you through the process.

Understanding US Asylum Visas

Asylum visas are intended to safeguard individuals who have escaped their home country because of persecution. Here’s what you need to know:


An asylum visa permits individuals to stay in the United States if they have experienced or fear they will experience harm because of their race, religion, nationality, political views, or association with a particular social group.

To qualify for asylum, applicants must show that they qualify as refugees according to US law. This involves proving that they have experienced past persecution or have a genuine fear of facing persecution in the future in their home country.

Application Process

  1. Filing for Asylum: The applicant must submit Form I-589 also known as the Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, a year within their arrival in the United States.
  2. Interview: After filing, applicants will be scheduled for an interview with a USCIS asylum officer who will assess the validity of the claim.
  3. Decision: The officer will decide based on the interview and submitted evidence. If approved, the applicant receives asylum status. If denied, the applicant may be referred to an immigration judge for further review.

Types of Asylum

Affirmative Asylum

Affirmative asylum is for people who are not in removal proceedings. They apply for asylum through the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Here’s how it works:

  • Application Submission: Fill out Form I-589, an Asylum application, within one year of arriving in the U.S.
  • Biometric Services: Attend an appointment to provide fingerprints, photos, and a signature.
  • Interview: Meet with a USCIS Asylum Officer for an interview to explain your case and provide evidence.
  • Decision: USCIS will decide your case. If approved, you can stay in the U.S. and may later apply for permanent residency. If denied, your case might go to an immigration judge, and you may enter defensive asylum proceedings.

Defensive Asylum

Defensive asylum is for people who are in removal proceedings and seek asylum to avoid deportation. This process includes:

  • Removal Proceedings: Start when someone is undocumented or has violated their visa conditions.
  • Application Submission: Submit Form I-589 to the immigration court during the removal process.
  • Immigration Court Hearings: Attend hearings before an immigration judge. These hearings involve an attorney from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) who will argue against your asylum claim.
  • Evidence and Testimony: Provide evidence and speak in court to support your asylum request. This can include witness statements, documents showing persecution, and reports on country conditions.
  • Judge’s Decision: The judge will decide your case based on the evidence. If approved, you can stay in the U.S. If denied, you can appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).

Both types of asylum processes can be complex, so it’s a good idea to seek legal help to prepare your application and present your case.
