Warning: It is very important that you send the application either by certified mail or Federal Express because you want to have proof that Immigration received it.
You can include any supporting documentation with form I-589. You can also submit your documents on the day of your interview.
Fingerprints: after you file your asylum application, USCIS will send you an appointment notice telling you that you have a date to have your fingerprints taken. The notice will include the date and time of the appointment and the address where you need to go. You do not have to pay any fees to have your fingerprints taken. If you have a form of photo identification, like a passport, you should bring it to your appointment; however, asylum applicants are not required to present photo identification at the fingerprint appointment so don’t worry if you don’t have any.
