Resettlement Support Centre

The Resettlement Support Center (RSC) for the Middle East and North Africa (RSC MENA), operated by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), conducts resettlement processing for the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) in fifteen countries throughout the MENA region.

Funded by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM), RSCMENA assists refugees with the many steps involved in the resettlement process to the US. RSCMENA has a permanent processing site in Cairo, Egypt.

Persons of special humanitarian concern who can establish persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion may be considered for admission to the United States as refugees. All resettlement services are free of charge.

US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) processing in Egypt takes place at the IOM office in Cairo with some additional processing in Alexandria.
