Asylum in US
Asylum in US
Every year, several million people from all over the world want to immigrate to US through asylum in this country. But it should be noted that due to the limited capacity to accept refugees, many of these requests are rejected and thousands of asylum seekers do not succeed in obtaining American residency. So, at the very beginning, we recommend that you use legal ways to immigrate to US, such as educational immigration, investment, work, marriage, etc.
This convention is related to the review of the status of asylum seekers, which was approved in 1951. A multilateral treaty that says who is a refugee and what obligations the member states have for the accepted refugee. In 1967, a protocol was added to this convention and made it universal among different countries of the world. The United States of America is one of the countries that accepted this protocol.
US asylum cases
US asylum cases are determined based on the 1967 protocol. Therefore, refugees must be subject to one of the following:
- Membership in a specific social group
