Seeking Asylum: The Basics

Asylum is not automatic. In fact, you must be able to show that you need it. Generally, as an asylum applicant, you must be able to prove:

  • You have a well-founded fear of persecution if you are forced to return to your home country.
  • The reason you fear persecution is related to one of several conditions: your religion, race, nationality, political opinion, sexual orientation or membership in a specific social group.

However, it is important to note that even if you meet these requirements, you may still be ineligible for asylum if the government determines you are a threat the U.S. security or you have participated in the persecution of others.
