Asylum and Refugee Program
The United States does not grant asylum in its diplomatic premises abroad. Under U.S. law, the United States grants asylum only to aliens who are physically present in the United States.
U.S. Refugee Program
To be eligible for consideration under the U.S. Refugee program, an applicant must meet the definition of a refugee: a person outside the United States who has been persecuted or has a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion. In addition, he or she must be able to establish that he or she is not already firmly resettled in a foreign country and must fall within certain refugee processing priorities.
The Honduran Office does not accept refugee resettlement applications directly. People interested in being considered for the U.S. Refugee Program should contact the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). UNHCR is located at Colonia Palmira, Avenida Republica de Panama, Edificio Casa de las Naciones Unidas, Tegucigalpa, Honduras. For more information please go to the UNHCR webpage at http://www.unhcr.org or contact the United Nations in Tegucigalpa at (504) 2220-1100 or (504) 2231-0102.
