Thread: Political Asylum for C1/D Visa?

  1. #1
    If someone has a C1/D Visa (Crewman/seaman visa, in transfer to D), the United States Immigration law says they are NOT eligible to apply for a residency. But is it possible to file for political asylum? Does it depend on what state you live in?

    Please help!

    Anybody can file for asylum, within ONE year of entering US
    It IS possible to file more than a year after arriving to US - if due to changed circumstances in Country of Origin, or if failure to timely file was due to circumstances beyond applicants' control.
    It is also possible to file for Withholding of Deportation under CAT (Convention Against Torture) at any time and under any status.

    They have specific forum and hundreds of posts dedicated to it.

    Good Luck!
