TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS EXTENSION

WASHINGTON—The Department of Homeland Security has announced the automatic extension of TPS designations for El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan. 

 

TPS beneficiaries from these six countries will retain their status, provided they continue to meet all the individual requirements for TPS eligibility. 

 

The automatic extension of TPS-related documentation includes Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) through Dec. 31, 2022.

 

Beneficiaries with interest in a new EAD with the expiration date of Dec. 31, 2022, displayed on the EAD must file Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization. 

 

A Federal Register notice explaining how TPS beneficiaries, their employers, and benefit-granting agencies may determine which EADs are automatically extended for those beneficiaries, will be published soon.
