USCIS has announced today that applicants who have a pending asylum application with USCIS can now check their case status online here. Only asylum applicants with an application pending with USCIS will be able to use this new feature to check their case status online. It will not cover defensive asylum applicants whose cases are pending in immigration court. Previously, asylum applicants could only check their case status through an asylum office in person or by phone, fax, or email. To check your status, simply enter your case number in the white bar, press enter, and it will show the latest updates of a case.

Asylum is a humanitarian immigration benefit intended to protect people from persecution if returned to their country of nationality. As of right now, and previously before the November 8 policy was enacted, anyone has the right to claim asylum, regardless of how they entered the United States.
