About RSCMENA

The Resettlement Support Center (RSC) for the Middle East and North Africa (RSCMENA) is operated by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Amman, Jordan.

RSCMENA conducts resettlement processing for the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) in sixteen 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 United States.

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.

RSC MENA is a Safe Space for Refugees

Many refugees have experienced traumatic events in their lives. Please check out the short video below created by the Cultural Orientation Resource Exchange (CORE), which provides an overview of how Resettlement Support Centers are safe spaces, providing a protected environment for refugees.
