USCIS Affirmative Asylum Scheduling Bulletin (October 6, 2016)

On October 6, 2016, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released its most recent edition of the Affirmative Asylum Scheduling Bulletin. The Affirmative Asylum Scheduling Bulletin is published monthly by the USCIS. It provides the average filing date of those scheduled for asylum interviews in the previous three months at each of the USCIS's eight asylum offices. The information allows applicants with pending affirmative asylum applications to glean an idea of when their asylum interviews may be scheduled (category three affirmative asylum application interviews are scheduled in order, with the oldest cases being scheduled first). The information only applies to category three applicants, which do not include children or those whose previously scheduled interview had been cancelled at the request of the applicant or by the USCIS.

To learn about how the Affirmative Asylum Scheduling Bulletin works in general, and how to best use the information it provides, please see our full article on the subject [see article].
