The I-589 asylum normative is used to apply for asylum in the United States. It allows individuals who are fleeing persecution in their home country to seek protection in the United States.
Individuals who are unable or unwilling to return to their home country due to a well-founded fear of persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion may be eligible to apply for asylum using the I-589 form.
When submitting an I-589 asylum application, applicants must provide supporting documentation to establish their eligibility for asylum. This may include evidence of persecution, such as police reports, medical records, and affidavits from witnesses or experts. Applicants must also provide proof of identity and may be required to undergo a medical examination and a background check.
