I am applying for asylum.
I have my entire package including my application, my declaration, reports, attachments, and evidences like flight tickets, hotel reservations, certificates.
Is it required to make two copies too from these attachments and evidences?
Carefully read and follow all the instructions that accompany the Form I-589. It is, however, never a good idea to file for asylum on your own, since the overwhelming majority of applications filed without using the professional services of an experienced asylum lawyer end up getting denied, with all the disastrous consequences that such denial er.."referral" to immigration court entails.

The answer above is only general in nature and cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
You should refer to the I589 instructions and consult with an attorney before filing any paperwork.
It is impossible to explain all the required evidence to support an asylum application without reviewing the facts of the case. Any mistake with your asylum application could be fatal to your case, so you should not risk your future by preparing your case without an attorney.
I suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney about your case. Please review the basic outline on asylum. https://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/asylum-7
