Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) 203: The Decision Making Process
After You File Your Application
For more information about where we are located, see the “ASC Locator” or “Asylum Office Locator” links to the right.
Scheduling Your Interview
If there are reasons for you to request an expedited scheduling of your NACARA interview, you should submit a written request with the reason for your request to the asylum office that has jurisdiction over your application or go in person to the asylum office and inquire about your case.
Preparing for the Interview
In order to receive your decision as quickly as possible after the interview, please be prepared to give the asylum officer any documents needed to establish your eligibility. Such documents may include:
If you have a validly issued passport and USCIS approves your NACARA application, your passport will be stamped with temporary evidence of your permanent resident status.
If You Cannot Attend Your Interview
See the “Asylum Office Locator” link on the right for fax numbers and addresses.
If You Change Your Address
If you have both a NACARA and asylum application pending with the asylum office, we will normally conduct a NACARA interview first. If the asylum officer grants you NACARA relief, you will be given the option of withdrawing your asylum application. If you decide not to withdraw your asylum application, we will schedule you for an asylum interview.
