IRAP’s USRAP Practice Guide is a new resource with legal background, practice tips, templates, and other tools to help legal practitioners represent a refugee applicant in the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP). The practice guide covers ways to access USRAP, how USRAP processing works, and the law applied in USRAP adjudications. Additionally, the guide contains detailed appendices on specific programs within USRAP such as the Central American Minors (CAM) refugee and parole program, the Afghan P-1 / P-2 program, and the Iraqi and Syrian P-2 program for I-130 beneficiaries.
IRAP’s practice guides are intended for legal practitioners. If you would like more general legal information about the USRAP process in multiple languages, or to request help from IRAP, please use IRAP’s Legal Information website.
