    I am an asylee from Nepal. My mom filed I-730 (asylee relative petition) for her son, who is my brother, in April of last year. After an inquiry call to the USCIS, I received an email saying that he appears to be inadmissible under the 212 (a) (3) (B) of the INA. Mom was a member of a "peaceful" political group years ago while in Nepal. Could that be the reason why my brother is considered inadmissible? What can be done about it? Is there a time frame as to when the case would be approved or whether it would be approved at all?

    Please help. ASAP. Thanks.

    It takes longer if your case is complicated or if your background check is pending.
    I was interviewed twice too and it took almost 11 months to receive the final decision.

    Namaste !!
    I am from Nepal, came to USA in student visa on Fall 2006. I graduated on 2008, Got a OPT and now my OPT expired. Now I am in H4 visa (Dependent of my husband H1B). I haven't been to Nepal once I get to USA.
    My questions : Can I file Asylum, if yes, what is the chances to approve asylum ?
    -If I am not granted (denied) asylum what will be my status ?
    -Does it affect to file Green card through my Husband H1B in future ?
    - My brother is going to be Citizen next year, He will file Green Card in future for me but it takes a decade to approve, does it affect by applying asylum ?
    Please Advice
    Thank You

    1 year rule to file asylum

    does one year rule apply to only unauthorized stay? the time you stayed in the USA on a valid visa don't count. so a student files an asylum after expiring his I20 is okay even it is after 5 years? please read the following:

    Source : w*w*w*http://immigration.lawyers.com/Immigration-Basics/Political-Asylum.html

    Eligibility for Asylum
    In order to get asylum in the United States, you must ask for it at a port of entry (such as an airport or border crossing) or file an application within one year of arriving in the United States. Exceptions to the one-year rule might be if conditions in your home country have changed, or if your personal circumstances have changed and those changes affect your eligibility for asylum. The time you spend in the United States with a valid visa isn't counted as part of the one-year period.

    You may not be eligible for asylum if you yourself have participated in persecution of others, or if you've "firmly resettled" in a country other than your home country (for example, by obtaining permanent residency in a country other than your home country or the United States). And fear of poverty or random violence isn't of itself enough to qualify you for asylum.

    There is no limit on how many people may be granted political asylum each year in the United States.

    Hi, I am in F1-visa and I came to US nearly 13 months ago. My visa is still valid for 4 more years. I learnt about asylum visa through my friends. Am I still eligible to apply for asylum?

    Yes if you have new circumstances changed in your life, situation, or in your country and these new circumstances wasn't there before the end of the one-year deadline.
