Learn about Refugee Resettlement

If you are a refugee and cannot return to your home country, you may be eligible to permanently relocate to another country. This is called resettlement. The United States of America is one of the countries in the world that accepts refugees for resettlement. Since 1980, Americans have welcomed millions of refugees from all over the world through the United States Refugee Admissions Program. The resources below provide key information on the United States Refugee Admissions Program.

Every refugee resettlement case is unique and the length of time required to complete the USRAP process depends upon the circumstances of each case. Resettlement is an option available only to a very limited number of refugees. Before you begin the process, which will involve time and effort on your part as well as on the part of the United States government, you should be sure you are ready to resettle to the United States if you are found to be eligible.
