Q : What Should I Bring With Me to the Asylum Interview?
You should bring the following documents to the interview if available:
A form of identification, including any passport(s) you possess, other travel or identification documents, and the Form I-94 Arrival-Departure Record, if you received one at the time of your arrival in the U.S.;
The originals of any birth certificates, marriage certificates, or other documents you previously submitted with your Form I-589;
A copy of your Form I-589 and other supplementary material that you previously submitted in case the asylum office is missing any of this information;
Any additional available items documenting your claim that you have not already submitted with your application. Any document in a language other than English must be accompanied by an English translation that the translator has certified as complete and correct, and by the translator’s certification that he or she is competent to translate into English the language used in the document.
You must bring an interpreter if you are not able to proceed with the interview in English.
You have the right to bring an attorney or representative. The attorney or representative must have filed or bring with him a Form G-28, which states that he or she is your attorney. (See link to G-28 below).
If your spouse and/or children under 21 at the time you filed your application are included in your asylum application as derivatives, they must also appear for the interview and bring any identity, travel or other supporting documents they have in their possession. Although you are required to list all of your family members on your application, you only need to bring those to the interview that will be included as dependents in the asylum decision.
