Refugee or Amerasian
(07/01/10 – 09/30/10)
A Refugee or Amerasian is an individual who has fled their country to escape invasion, oppression, or persecution.
Refugee or Amerasian as a noncitizen is potentially eligible for NA or CA.
A Refugee or Amerasian who is later granted Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) status is potentially eligible for NA and CA based on their previous status.
NOTE Refugee Resettlement Offices have designated FAA staff that determine eligibility for newly arrived refugees. They are the only staff that key the RE Citizenship code on IDCI.
