Each year thousands Moldavians seek asylum in the United States. Not all applications from Moldavians are accepted. Nevertheless, around five dozen Moldavians are granted asylum each year.
To request asylum in the U.S., you should first get a U.S. visa in Moldavia and then move to America. It is true that U.S. immigration laws allow people to illegally enter the U.S. territory in a bid to receive asylum. But you must provide very convincing evidence to the U.S. immigration authorities that you are eligible for asylum.
If you do not have persuasive documents to support your claim for asylum, the U.S. authorities may deport you back to Moldavia. One recent example of deportation of a Moldavian is the case of Alexandru Ghilan. Mr. Ghilan left Moldavia and moved to the United States with his work visa. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services rejected Alexandru’s application for asylum because he failed to provide substantial evidence.
What this means is that before you arrive the United States, you should verify if your case fully confirms with U.S. immigration laws related to asylum seekers.
The general recommendation is to contact a professional immigration lawyer who will assist you during the interview in a USCIS office or at the Immigration Court hearings.
