DHS Extends TPS Designations for El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, Sudan, Honduras, and Nepal

September 14, 2021

DHS is automatically extending the validity of TPS-related documentation for beneficiaries under the TPS designations for El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, Sudan, Honduras, and Nepal through December 31, 2022, from the current expiration date of October 4, 2021.

Background

Through this notice, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced actions to ensure its continued compliance with the preliminary injunction orders of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in Ramos, et al. v. Nielsen, et. al and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York in Saget, et. al., v. Trump, et. al., and with the order of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California to stay proceedings in Bhattarai v. Nielsen. Beneficiaries under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designations for El Salvador, Nicaragua, Sudan, Honduras, and Nepal will retain their TPS while the preliminary injunction in Ramos and the Bhattarai orders remain in effect, provided that their TPS is not withdrawn because of individual ineligibility.

Beneficiaries under the TPS designation for Haiti will retain their TPS while either of the preliminary injunctions in Ramos or Saget remain in effect, provided that their TPS is not withdrawn because of individual ineligibility.

However, on August 3, 2021, DHS issued a new designation for Haiti TPS, and in order to secure TPS pursuant to the new Haiti designation, eligible individuals must apply before the close of the registration period on Feb. 3, 2023.

Eligible individuals are strongly encouraged to apply at the earliest practicable date, to ensure that their TPS continues beyond the court-ordered extensions and without any gaps in status. In addition, eligible individuals who do not register for the new TPS designation during the registration period, may be prohibited from filing a late initial registration during any subsequent extension of the designation if they do not meet certain conditions. This notice further provides information on the automatic extension of the validity of TPS-related Employment Authorization Documents (EADs); Notices of Action (Forms I– 797); and Arrival/Departure Records (Forms I–94) for those beneficiaries under the TPS designations for El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, Sudan, Honduras, and Nepal.
