Minnesota Asylum Based on Nationality Attorney

Asylum Based on Nationality

A person who qualifies for asylum based on nationality, is someone who has been seriously threatened or has experienced psychological, physical, or economic harm because of their nationality, (this includes being a part of a specific linguistic or ethnic group) by either the government of their home country, or a group within their home country that the government is unable or unwilling to control.

Obtaining asylum based on nationality can include, but is not limited to the following situations:
-Members of a national minority who have experienced or have been threatened with persecution
-Conflicts between multiple national linguistic or ethnic groups that has led to the persecution of a specific group.
-Having experienced fear or suffering due to one’s nationality
-Having been threatened or persecuted by a dominant minority group

It is important that you have an experienced immigration attorney working on your case prior to applying, proving that you are eligible for asylum based on your nationality is a difficult and complex process.

If you are applying for asylum based on your nationality you must complete and file form I-589 and submit it to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. You are able to include your spouse and children on this application form, and there is no filing fee. If you are hoping to obtain employment in the United States while waiting for your application to be approved, you have to submit an employment authorization document (form I-765) no earlier than 150 days after first applying for asylum. 12 months after being granted asylum you may apply for a green card, this is done by completing and submitting I-485 to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
