The decision of an asylum officer to grant or to deny asylum or withholding of removal, or to refer an asylum application in accordance with § 208.14(b), shall be communicated in writing to the applicant. Notices of decisions to grant or deny asylum, or to refer an application, by asylum officers shall generally be served in person unless, in the discretion of the asylum office director, routine service by mail is appropriate. A letter communicating denial of the application shall state the basis for denial of the asylum application. The letter also shall contain an assessment of the applicant's credibility, unless the denial is the result of the applicant's conviction of an aggravated felony. Pursuant to § 208.9(d), an applicant must appear in person to receive and to acknowledge receipt of the decision.
