U.S. Now Translates Asylum Instructions in Dari and Pashto

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has added instructions in both Dari and Pashto, in addition to English, for Afghan nationals who are applying for asylum in the U.S. The agency is fast-tracking asylum applications for Afghan nationals paroled under Operation Allies Welcome.

You may apply for asylum if you have been persecuted or fear that you will be persecuted in your home country based on your nationality, race, religion, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. You must apply within one-year of your last arrival to the United States unless you can show changed circumstances that materially affect your eligibility for asylum or extraordinary circumstances directly related to the delay in filing your application.

For more information on application requirements, exceptions, forms and alternative immigration pathways you can head over to these USCIS website pages that are now translated in Pashto and Dari:
