Recommended Posts

Friends - can you please help.


I am a male that came to the US at age of 21 on H1B visa which lasted until age of 27. Never registered for Selective Service. At age of 26 - applied for asylum. Withdrew asylum application when was 29. 

Question - did I break any Selective Service registration requirements when naturalization comes up?

As long as you were an h1b until your 26th birthday you should be ok.  Once you became an asylee you became subject to SSS if you were not yet 26.


"The few individuals who are exempt from this requirement are those on current non-immigrant visas, as long as they remain on a valid visa up until they turn 26"
