Requirements for achieving refugee status

To be eligible for refugee status, you must show:

  • You are outside your home country and not willing to return.
  • Due to your inclusion within an ethnic, religious or other type of group, you are being persecuted or have a legitimate fear of persecution.
  • You have filed for asylum within one year of entering the United States.
  • You have not persecuted anyone.
