Syrian Temporary Protected Status (TPS) has been extended until September 30, 2022. DHS announced that the 60-day registration and re-registration period for Syrian TPS and Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) was to begin on March 19, 2021 and run until May 18, 2021. Only those who have been residing in the United States since March 19, 2021 can apply. Full instructions regarding the application procedure can be found in the Federal Register.
Employment authorization will be automatically extended until September 27, 2021 for those who reapply and have current TPS EADs expiring on March 31, 2021. Those who have already re-registered and/or applied to extend their registrations and TPS EADs need not reapply. When their cases are approved, the approval will run until September 30, 2022.
