Know Your Rights in Deportation & Removal Matters Our Team is Ready to Help

REFUGEES

Refugees can apply for a green card after having been admitted as a refugee under section 207 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

Yet, you must be physically present in the United States for at least one year after your admission as a refugee at the time you move forward with your green card application. Furthermore, you must have maintained your refugee status. If you have lost this status, by having committed a crime, you must explore other options for immigration benefits. Alternatively, if you are in immigration proceedings, you will need to apply for deportation relief.

Keep in mind that even if you have been admitted as a refugee, you will still be vetted for your admissibility when applying for your green card. This is true for you and your dependents. Your admissibility will focus on your moral character. It will also take into account how you entered the United States as a refugee and whether there was any fraud in procuring that benefit. A medical examination must also be furnished to USCIS to show that you do not have any communicable diseases and have received the appropriate vaccines.
