You cannot file the application at asylum offices. Asylum Offices exclusively conduct scheduled interviews for individuals seeking asylum and for cases related to suspension of deportation and special rule cancellation of removal under the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA).
When an Asylum Office handles a case, it will inform you through the mail if an appointment for an interview on the application is scheduled.
