Services Overview » Asylum Office

Asylum Office

Asylum Offices handle scheduled interviews only for asylum and suspension of deportation and special rule cancellation of removal under the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA).

Services before you file

Asylum Offices do not provide information services. We recommend you use our website or call customer service.

Filing services

Applications are not filed at Asylum Offices. Follow the instructions on the application form you wish to file, and mail your completed application to the appropriate Service Center for initial processing.

Services after you file

As an Asylum Office processes a case it will notify an applicant by mail if it schedules an appointment for an interview on the application.

If you believe there is a problem with your case, if you move or need other service, we offer a variety of Case Services while a case is pending or after it is completed. Just call customer service. Asylum Offices do not directly provide Case Services relating to the status of applications or other associated services. Call customer service for information and assistance.


We may schedule an appointment at an ASC, local office or asylum office as we process your case. It is important that you make every effort to make that appointment. Not appearing will at least delay your case. It may mean certain processing steps will have to be repeated. It may also affect eligibility for benefits, and could mean we will have to deny the application or petition.

For ASC processing our appointment notice explains alternatives if you cannot make your appointment.

For all other appointments, if an emergency prevents you from making your appointment, follow the instructions on the appointment notice.
