  • Answers to Common Immigration Questions - How Do I . . .

    The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services has created a series of documents that they call "How Do I …?s" These documents cover a wide variety of topics on immigration matters and are meant to assist you in finding the information you need about a particular immigration and asylum subject. Each How Do I …? starts with background information on the chosen topic, and then helps answer your questions about INS procedures. Each How Do I …? links you to information on the INS Website and, sometimes, to relevant information on other U.S. Government Websites. These links go to the relevant sections of immigration law and federal regulations, to instructions on applying for immigration benefits, the correct form and fee, and so on. Content Detail
