Political Asylum Series: Nigeria

Political Asylum – Part II

Spotlight: Nigeria

In the second part of our asylum series, we will discuss previous asylum claims made by Nigerian nationals.  This discussion should help you determine if asylum is a possibility for you

This asylum post will cover asylum applications where the applicant is of Nigerian origin.

Political Asylum Requirements

Foreign nationals in the US who are unable or unwilling to return to their home country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, or membership in a particular social or political group may obtain asylum.

Examples of Successful US Asylum Cases Made by Nigerian Nationals

We can help you win your asylum claim and obtain permanent residency (green card) in the US

Many Nigerian nationals have credible fear of persecution in India that can lead to an asylum approval.  However, most asylum cases are denied due to applicants failure to articulate their fear and document events that have led to that fear.  We have successfully helped many Nigerian clients and we are familiar with many circumstances that can lead to a successful asylum claim.  In our experience, most asylum applications are adjudicated in 3-6 months.  It is best, but not mandatory, to file your asylum application within the first 12 months of your entry to the US and while you have a valid immigration status such as a visitor or work visa.   We understand the fear and the pain you’re going through and we’ll make sure that your asylum process is as painless as possible.
