Question:

Do I need to be in the United States to apply for asylum?

Answer:

We receive a lot of inquiries from people who are interested in the asylum application process. A frequent question that comes up is whether or not it is required for someone to be inside the United States to apply for asylum. The answer to that question is yes, you must be inside the United States to apply for asylum. By definition, asylees are inside the United States when they apply for protection. Refugees are outside of the United States when they apply for protection. It’s a fine point, but it is an important distinction to make and the reason why there are different procedures for both. If you have any questions about the asylum application process or any other immigration-related issues, give us a call. We’d love to talk to you.
