DHS Extends TPS Re-registration Periods: What You Need to Know

In a significant development for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has granted an extension that offers much-needed relief to individuals with TPS from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan. TPS designation and re-registration periods have been extended from the previous 60 days to 18 months. Here are the extended deadlines:

El Salvador: Re-registration is open now until March 9, 2025.

Haiti: Re-registration is open now until August 3, 2024.

Honduras: Re-registration is now available until July 5, 2025.

Nepal: Re-registration is open from October 24, 2023 until June 24, 2025.

Nicaragua: Re-registration is open from November 6, 2023 until July 5, 2025.

Sudan: Re-registration is open now until April 19, 2025.

This extended timeline is excellent news for TPS beneficiaries, as it allows them to submit Form I-821 (Application for Temporary Protected Status) and Form I-765 (Application for Employment Authorization) at any time during these 18-month windows, regardless of previous expiration dates.

It's essential to note that this announcement doesn't change the eligibility requirements or the previously announced extensions of TPS designations. Instead, it offers current beneficiaries more time to secure their benefits.

If you or someone you know is a TPS beneficiary from one of these countries, this extension presents an opportunity to ensure continued protection and work authorization.
