Special note on refugee status and assistance:

The International Rescue Committee does not conduct direct refugee resettlement. You must approach the nearest office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for assistance. The UNHCR will determine if your case qualifies for resettlement to any of the international resettlement countries, including the United States.  Read Frequently Asked Questions About Refugees and Resettlement for more information.
