USCIS Issues New Instructions for Filing Asylum Applications with USCIS After EOIR Dismissal or Termination of Removal Proceedings

As of October 16, 2023, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has updated the process for asylum applications from individuals whose removal proceedings were dismissed or terminated by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). If your removal proceedings were dismissed or terminated by EOIR and you wish to pursue an asylum claim, you must submit the latest version of Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, to the USCIS office assigned to your place of residence. If you had a pending asylum application with EOIR when your removal proceedings were dismissed or terminated, include any additional or updated information related to your asylum claim. Providing evidence of EOIR’s dismissal or termination of your proceedings and your pending Form I-589 is recommended. USCIS will use the original Form I-589 filing date for various purposes if filed before the EOIR dismissal date; otherwise, your current filing date will be used. If you originally filed an affirmative asylum application with USCIS and it was transferred to immigration court, a new Notice to Appear will be issued to return your application to EOIR if you file a new asylum application. To prevent processing delays, carefully follow the instructions on where and how to submit your Form I-589.
