USCIS has announced that it is extending the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) re-registration periods for El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan from 60 days to the end of the full 18-month extension period.
The dates are as follows:
- El Salvador March 9, 2025
- Haiti August 3, 2024
- Honduras July 5, 2025
- Nepal June 24, 2025
- Nicaragua July 5, 2025
- Sudan April 19, 2025
TPS is a temporary benefit that allows individuals to remain lawfully in the United States without being subject to detention due to lack of status. The secretary of Homeland Security “may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately.”
This announcement means that current TPS beneficiaries who have not yet re-registered for TPS or who have not yet applied to renew their Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) may do so until the end of the current TPS period.
This re-registration period extension does not change any of the previously announced eligibility requirements.
