Brief to the USCIS Asylum Office in support of an application for asylum based upon political opinion in Venezuela.
The length of the asylum process varies, but it typically takes between 6 months and several years. The length of asylum process may vary depending on whether the asylum seeker filed affirmatively or defensively and on the particular facts of his or her asylum claim.
If you can get a visa to come to the United States, such as a tourist visa, you can apply for asylum when you arrive, by telling the inspections officer that you fear returning to your country and wish to apply for asylum.
Your statement should help the Asylum Officer or the Immigration Judge better understand why you are applying for asylum. Describe specific incidents and dates, and include as much detail as you can remember. Do not simply write general statements. If you cannot remember an exact date, state that you are estimating it.
