 The total amount of time can vary depending on whether the asylum application is processed as an
affirmative application or as defense to removal proceedings. In an affirmative petition, the Asylum
Office is supposed to give an asylum interview within 45 days of the filing of the application. A decision
from the Asylum Office usually comes within a few weeks. If the Asylum Office does not approve the
application and the applicant is placed in removal proceedings or if the asylum application is filed only
after first being placed in removal proceedings, the alien will have a first hearing before an immigration
court within a few weeks. In removal proceedings in which an asylum application is filed, the
immigration court is supposed to set a hearing to determine whether to grant asylum within 180 days of
the date of the hearing in which the Court determines that an Asylum Application has been filed, although the hearing can be postponed in some circumstances.
