USCIS Opens Additional San Francisco Asylum Office Location

USCIS’ San Francisco Asylum Office is opening an additional temporary location in Oakland, California. Effective May 15, 2024, asylum applicants under the jurisdiction of the San Francisco Asylum Office may receive an interview notice to appear at the asylum office located in Oakland instead of San Francisco. This additional location increases the San Francisco Asylum Office’s capacity to schedule and conduct affirmative asylum interviews more efficiently.

The addresses of the new temporary Oakland-based office within the San Francisco Asylum Office’s jurisdiction are:

Physical Address:

1301 Clay Street
Oakland, CA 94612

Mailing Address:

P.O. Box 77530
San Francisco, CA 94107

Opening this additional location will not affect the operations of the current asylum office location in San Francisco. Beginning May 15, 2024, the San Francisco Asylum Office will schedule and conduct affirmative asylum interviews at both locations.

If you are an asylum applicant and you are scheduled for an asylum interview, carefully review your interview notice for important information about your asylum interview, including where to appear for your interview. As a reminder, asylum interviews are by appointment only. See the Asylum Office locator for more information about asylum office locations and additional services.

For accessibility and accommodation requests, please visit our Disability Accommodations for the Public page. For more information about what to expect at your affirmative asylum interview, see our Preparing for Your Affirmative Asylum Interview webpage.
