How long to get a work permit after filing for asylum?

If you have filed for asylum, due to changes by the Trump administration, you are required to wait 365 days before applying for a work permit.

How Long Will It Take for My Work Permit to Come Back?

During normal situations, it may take 3 to 6 months for your work permit to arrive. If the USCIS is backlogged, it may take longer for your work permit to be processed.

What Forms Do I Need to File?

After the 365-day waiting period is over, you will need to fill out Form I-765 and mail it to the USCIS service center. Please book an appointment with our firm to discuss the preparations necessary to provide supporting evidence. This evidence is important and will need to be sent along with your work permit application.
