[PSRList] Advice on UNHCR Doc

Hi Syn,

The accepted document for a Group of Five or Community Sponsor application from Egypt is the blue "Refugee Registration Card", which is issued to people who have been determined to be refugees.

The attached yellow "Asylum Seeker Registration Card", which is issued to asylum seekers in Egypt, is not accepted as valid proof of refugee status.

Best regards,

Hello all,

Sorry to steal your thunder Michel, but I have a similar question while we are in this subject.

Attached is "Asylum Seeker Registration Card" from UNHCR in Egypt. The Eritrean refuge in Egypt tells me they get another blue UNHCR ID with full refugee status few years after receiving this yellow "Asylum Seeker" card.

My Question: Would the attached card be good enough for G5 application?

I would appreciate your advice if the attached doc can be used to support a group of five application for a Syrian refugee. She is a mother with 2 young kids.
