Help with The Refugee Screening Process

Home » Immigration Help & Resources » Help with The Refugee Screening Process

There have been few times in the history of the world where immigration has been this turbulent. Currently, there is a mass migration of people coming from the middle east and other war-torn countries, flooding across Europe and the United States, and each country that takes in refugees has to deal with polarized citizens. For the moment, US Immigration Bonds attempts to help with the refugee screening process with this simple guide.

1. Register as a refugee at the UN

Collect the documents you need to get started with the refugee screening process. It’s important to understand what “refugee status” means. A refugee is someone who was forced to flee their country because of persecution, war, or natural disaster and they can no longer return.

If at this first step of the refugee screening process it is determined that you are not a refugee, you will not be given status. If you enter the US illegally, you will be detained and you will need an immigration bond to be released before trail.

2. Certain refugees are referred to USA

The United States will only accept refugees based on certain criteria. In general, refugees who have worked with the US military previously, or refugees who fall into preferred status based on bills passed by Congress, are submitted to the US refugee screening process.

If a refugee has not been approved to resettle in the U.S., they cannot enter illegally because they will be detained and deported. US Immigration Bonds recommends adhering to the rules and guidelines of the refugee screening.

3. Interview

This is the first interview. Refugees must bring all important documents and they will answer information regarding background.

4. Background check

The first of many background checks that make up the refugee screening process. Information is used to check watch lists.

5. Additional clearance

Clearance from all US law enforcement agencies.

6. Counter terrorism clearance

This clearance focuses specifically on any ties that the refugee may have to terrorist organizations.

7. (Syrian refugees) additional screening

The United States accepts Syrian refugees, but they are flagged for additional security clearance as part of their refugee screening process.

8. Second interview with USCIS

This interview is conducted by a trained USCIS official, and it is far more detailed. The official and applicant must meet face-to-face. At this interview, the official will determine if the applicant qualifies for resettlement in the United States.

9. Final Processing

This part of the refugee screening process is also known as conditional approval. You have been granted approval to enter the United states as a refugee, if all the following conditions are met.

10. Biometrics

Finger Prints are submitted to the FBI, DHS and DOD for additional screening and placed on file.

11. Medical screening

If a refugee has any transferable diseases, they will be denied entry into the United States.

12. Approval

Welcome to the United States of America! Each refugee will be matched with a sponsor agency, undergo cultural orientation and finally be admitted to the U.S.

Once a refugee has been granted resettlement into the United States, it is important that the refugee does their best to assimilate to succeed in their new surroundings. If laws are broken and you are detained for deportation, call US Immigration Bonds immediately. We’ll get you released from detainment the same day.

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again. They did everything they could to get me a same day release. They exceeded my expectations. I would not recommend any company other than US immigration bonds. Us immigration bonds, under promises and over fulfills. They were a true blessing ! Thank you so much more

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
